Who is a foodie? Now many of you may answer this question and the answer may vary from person to person. But the most common answer to this question is that a person who eats a lot is a foodie. And the truth is, it is not true.
Now a foodie is obviously somebody who actually loves food. But just because you love food and consume a lot, it does not make you a foodie. A foodie is a person, who loves to explore food and try to discover more cuisines and restaurants. In fact, they can be people who adore all kinds of food, or rather be very fussy on the taste they must have on their tongues. If they are fussy, they can be foodies if they still explore new tastes whether they like it or not. But, irrespective of whether they adore or be picky about what they eat, they are also people with a good sense of food.
These people just don’t eat away all they can, rather they try new tastes, and also consume good food and not just anything they get. They are also people who inspect the food very well such as the flavour, hygiene, the techniques used in cooking and more. They may also be the first ones to try out new restaurants.
Nowadays, social media is also a great way to express your love for food. And yes, they do that too. They post pics and reviews of the food they are about to have or already had some long back. They would like to go any extent to try out great food, and one common way is by travelling. Travelling helps you in discovering new flavours of various countries, their main ingredients, and their staple diets. Some of them who hail from this group, at times turn out to be great chefs and restaurateurs or turn out to be hosts of shows where the food becomes the hero.
But enjoying great food is also an art because, people can eat a lot of food, but very few are able to understand and relish food. Give them one ingredient, they may give you a list of food items that can be made out of it, and at times may also cook it wonderfully. This wonderful mass can also tell the history of a particular dish, which they recollect while they have a bite of their favourite food, and that is what distinguishes them from the rest of the so called ‘foodies’.
