What is a Foodie?


A foodie is defined as someone with a strong interest in food that goes above filling basic hunger.

If you are a foodie, like myself, your Facebook feed probably shows more links to food and recipes than anything else.

Your status updates may be recipes or pictures of what you had for dinner. You are constantly on the lookout for new recipes.

You understand what people mean when they talk about flavor profile.

The Food Network and Cooking Channel are among your favorites and you might even have a few favorite chefs you like to follow (a few of my favorites include Alex GuarnaschelliGuy FieriAlton Brown and Michael Symon). You may have even experimented with your own version of Chopped in your kitchen or thought of some creative sabotages to challenge friends to in your own version of Cutthroat Kitchen.

For me, food has always been a comfort and a way to share with others. I love spending a day in the kitchen making a spread of food for family and friends. Whether it is baking up cookies and pies for the holidays (one year my kids and I made over 2000 cookies and candies) or just a simple meal for the family, I love being in the kitchen. I love trying new recipes and then playing around with them, adding my own twist. Cooking, for me, is not a chore, but a passion.

If any of this sounds familiar, then you can probably add Foodie to your title too.
