What is a Foodie?

This blog is about foodie moments, but some folks might not share our concept of what a “foodie” is. So, in a first of a number of posts on the subject, let me share some thoughts on the matter.

What is a Foodie – Criteria #1:

A “Foodie” is someone who enjoys food for more than its perceived nutritional value.  Said another way, a foodie relishes understanding and discussing food preparation, presentation, and flavor. Being a Foodie involves passion for food, and not merely acceptance of what’s on the plate in front of you.

More on this subject later.

A Foodie Moment

November 1st, 2009 at 10:48 am (AST) by Jake Richter

Many people who have found happiness in life say that the best path towards fulfillment is to do the things that you love best, and success will follow. Certainly, doing the things you like makes it more likely that you will work on them regularly.

Thus, as food is a passion of the Traveling Richters, we have opted to created a separate site to share that passion with others.

“A Foodie Moment” refers to the joy and pleasure we find in discovering new foods, cooking techniques, presentations, combinations of textures and flavors. These joys can be simple or they can also be epiphanies. Either way, we hope that you will enjoy our Foodie Moments with us.
