Fervent Foodie featured in Creative Loafing Magazine

Creative Loafing

Recently, Keia Mastrianni of Charlotte’s Creative Loafing magazine asked me how I define the word “foodie.”  Admittedly, I was a little frazzled by the question.  Define foodie?!  Let me counts the ways…  For me, “foodie” is all encompassing.  It’s me.  It’s my world.  It’s my everything.

  1. I’ve been called a foodie many times. To me, I think it means that I take a much broader approach to what I consider good food. I look at what goes into the food and how it was prepared. If you pulled a jar of peanut butter from my pantry, you would see only one ingredient on the label. Who supplied the fish/chicken/beef/pork? And then, how does it taste? A foodie knows that all desserts are not created equal, regardless of the amount of sugar. You can tell who uses butter and who uses shortening in their cookies.

    In short, a foodie cares about the food they eat.
