What IS a foodie anyway?
My guess is we all think we know what makes a foodie a foodie. I think a foodie is someone who has a great interest in all things food. I think a true foodie can go into a fridge or a pantry that would be considered barren by the average person's standards and create a great meal. I think a foodie has instincts about the pairing of flavors and textures. A foodie doesn't put food in boxes like "breakfast" or "appetizer." She knows that food just needs to be good, not punctual. A foodie doesn't turn her nose up at things simply because she's never seen, heard of, or tried them before. A foodie is adventurous, thoughtful, and knows that life is too short not to enjoy fabulous food.
What, in your opinion, are the characteristics of a foodie?
