Gourmet vs Foodie

Gourmet vs Foodie

I’ve always thought of a foodie as a person and gourmet as the type of food. Isn’t Gourmand the word for people who love gourmet food?

I’ve had many a debate with friends and colleagues about the definition of a ‘foodie’ or ‘Gourmand?’ I’m fascinated by the wide range of opinions on this subject and enjoy weighing in my thoughts over a glass of reasonably good local wine. So what’s the deal?

Personally, whichever your notion as a foodie, gourmand or otherwise, it comes down to getting excited about your best tasting sausage, gelato or craft beer.

I’m living to eat my patio tomatoes. Weigh in with your story. It’s all good, literally.
