Then you come to the real "foodie". One who has at least 10 different salts, who knows you better make your French Laundry reservation 2 months in advance and be prepared to spend 4 hours on the most exciting eating experiences of your life. One who knows that prime can be more then a number, and to appreciate the reward that is realized from a pig nosing around in the forests of France!
I consider myself to be a real foodie in the making. I am a student, as well as a teacher in my quest of more knowledge. I think I own at least 200 cookbooks, but still only use them as reference for I like to cook by taste, not by convention.
SO here I am, writing my blog entry, hoping to encourage all walks of the foodie scale to chime in on their journey to figuring out the where, when and why of being a foodie. I plan on discussing everything from organics to genetically engineered food to get answers, explore options and situations. The funny thing is I just don't know what the purpose is, other then an interest and thirst for learning. This isn't meant to be any kind of a political blog, just a way to communicate with others like us, voice our thoughts, ask our questions, get opinions and see what might be useable information for our quests to become a true "Foodie"!
