Comments on: Don’t Call Me a Foodie http://sarahscucinabella.com/2009/03/10/dont-call-me-a-foodie/ Quick and Easy Recipes | Home Cooking | Family Recipes Thu, 17 Aug 2017 16:10:17 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.8.1 By: Candelaria Silva http://sarahscucinabella.com/2009/03/10/dont-call-me-a-foodie/#comment-1566 Mon, 16 Mar 2009 15:23:57 +0000 http://sarahscucinabella.com/?p=1362#comment-1566 I wrote a piece on how I like food a while ago. I cook with mostly fresh foods, grew up that way and except for a few years when I veered off the path, I’m back on it.
Did anyone see Alice Waters on 60 Minutes on Sunday? I didn’t like parts of the interview because they really did reinforce her as an elitist despite her comments to the contrary. Reporters can lead with the visuals they choose and the questions they ask.
Anyhow foodie, food-lover, good cook, slow foods participant, and voluptuous…I can take it.

I associate it with a good thing..although I feel like everyone is such a foodie these days. I don’t enjoy being called a snob – so I get why you’re so angry that people throw the word foodie at you like that.

It is what it is and I’m reminded of Abraham Lincoln’s comment that we can’t please all the people all of the time.

I’m not a chef, I’m a home cook. And because I enjoy excellent food, I guess that could also make me a food snob. I love food and I always have. But I use the term foodie because it’s there. I’ve never thought about whether it describes one particular brand of gourmand or another (which is an interesting euphemism because it is synonymous with glutton, gorger, and guzzler — all of which are less appealing to me than foodie). But interesting…

I think about where we’ll eat right away when we’re out all day. I eat healthy, I think about nutrition, I try new ingredients and recipes, I love ethnic foods from around the globe.

Food for me is fun, a conversation starter, a life source, an energy source, a way for my family to come together.

I am not overweight, I hardly eat junk food, I’m not a wine conesseur (and can’t even spell it) and I am defenitely a FOODIE!

EVERYONE’S a chef. when I started cooking professionally 15 years ago I worked for real chefs/foodies – now everyone’s hopping up on that pedestal with them. i’m not sure there’s any problem with this – but it seems like we’ve supersized more than just portions in our lives. is it all just ego? sort of an “I care about food therefore I have a title” thing? i’ve been called a foodie, and I don’t take any offense. but i wouldn’t presume the title myself.

nice post. i like the conversation.

Although I don’t mind being called a foodie (mostly because it’s by people that mean it in a good way), I do hate how the word has become something negative, like it’s almost spit out.
