A foodie or just someone who likes to hog? Someone who likes to explore different restaurants or an #InstagramFoodie?
Before calling yourself a foodie, stop! understand!
Just because you like to eat doesn’t make you a foodie. A foodie isn’t someone who tells that a particular restaurant is awesome, a foodie is someone who knows where what’s worth noshing on.
Dictionary meaning of ‘foodie’:
A person with a particular interest in food; a gourmet; a person who enjoys food for pleasure
What ‘foodie’ doesn’t mean: Food Hog
A food hog is a person who hogs and constantly eats food
Food hogs pursue eating as a hobby, foodies don’t. However, this term is recklessly thrown around of late. Even someone with a digital camera who visits restaurants only for #FoodForTheDay photos, call themselves foodiies these days. Foodies know the cooking styles, ingredients, famous preparation methods along with the origin of the food they eat.
A foodie has a list of his favourite dishes that is longer than his bucket list.
Next time, call yourself a foodie only if you can make a recommendation backed with some relevant information. Okay?
