What kind of foodie are you?
A foodie is a person who has an ardent or refined interest in food and alcoholic beverages.
A foodie seeks new food experiences as a hobby rather than simply eating out of convenience or hunger.
The term came into use almost simultaneously in the United States and Britain.
Typical foodie interests and activities include the food industry, wineries and wine tasting, breweries and beer sampling, food science, following restaurant openings and closings and occasionally reopenings, food distribution, food fads, health and nutrition, cooking classes, culinary tourism, and restaurant management.
A foodie might develop a particular interest in a specific item, such as the best fusion food or baking.
Many publications have food columns that cater to foodies and many of the websites carrying the name foodie have become popular amongst the foodies.
Interest by foodies in the 1980s and 1990s gave rise to the Food Network and other specialized food programming, popular films and television shows about food such as Top Chef, The Great British Bake Off and MasterChef, a renaissance in specialised cookbooks, specialised periodicals such as Gourmet Magazine and Cook’s Illustrated, growing popularity of farmers’ markets, food-oriented websites and blogs.
