Are you a foodie?
« on: Yesterday at 11:49:54 PM »
I was reading a restaurant review awhile ago and one comment referred to the restaurant as a place foodies would love. 

It got me thinking....

What is your definition of a foodie?  Someone who loves food?  A food snob?

Do you consider yourself a foodie?

Random and unnecessary thought of the day  :P

Good question. I think of a foodie as someone who is a bit obsessed with food. A bit over the top.  I think most of us here at PM are foodies

Depends on how it is used in a sentence. Examples:

1) I am a foodie = I enthusiastically seek out the very best restaurants, ingredients, techniques, equipment, and information to create memorable eating experiences for myself and my loved-ones.

2) He is a foodie = He is an insufferably pretentious pedant who seeks out fancy-schmancy, hoity-toity, precious food for the purpose of showing off to other foodies via social media and Internet forums.

Haha Bill that's pretty much spot on.

 Can one be a foodie without being pretentious?  I love to "enthusiastically seek out the very best" and yet find myself dumbfounded by poor/average yet wildly popular joints. 

Can we demand fresh ingredients, balance and overall quality without putting our noses in the sky?

I am an unpretentious foodie, on a budget! Kinda like as my late mon used to say, " I have champagne taste, on a beer budget"
I love the best ingredients I can find and when I eat out I want great food with wonderful service at a fair price. I do like cloth on the table and fine dining tableware.

  I would go to that restaurant as long as they didn't use the words; artisan,sustainable,organic, or local sourced....50 damn times in their menu.
