For the Food Geek In You: Foodies

What is a Foodie, really? According to Wikipedia, a foodie is an informal term for a particular class of aficionado of food  and drink . What’s an aficionado? It’s basically a fan; one who has a liking and enthusiasm for something. A BIG enthusiasm! Digging deeper into my research, I question myself on the difference between a Gourmet and a Foodie. Still according to Wikipedia, although the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably, foodies differ from gourmets  in that gourmets are epicures of refined taste who may or may not be professionals in the food industry, whereas foodies are amateurs who simply love food for consumption, study, preparation, and news. Gourmets simply want to eat the best food, whereas foodies want to learn everything about food, both the best and the ordinary, and about the science, industry, and personalities surrounding food.

Now. Where do you stand? What are you?

I think I’m a foodie… And as a foodie, I have to admit we can sometimes be real geeks. A true boredom for people who are not interested in food; a true snobs to the ones who simply eat for survival purposes. Whether you’re a foodie or not, and if you can laugh a little and be sarcastic about things, there’s a new show coming to the web. I’ve only seen the trailer but it looks intriguing. I’m curious to see how this web series will be. If you’re curious like me, go to the following website and watch it!

Watch the trailer and get teased!! Foodies Trailer
