I'm with you on that. It's like the term "desk divers", which refers to people who buy dive watches but only wear them to the office, because they don't scuba dive. This may be a good thread idea.I love good food. I hate the term "foodie".
I am. I love to cook and I'm good at it. Both in the kitchen and the grill, and BBQ pit. I can make pretty much anything, lately I've been really into Thai food. I can make every dish for Thanksgiving better than mom, and turn around and smoke a perfect brisket and rack of ribs.
I try to get my hands on any recipe I can. I have subscriptions to America's Test Kitchen, Cooks Country, Cuisine at Home, and Chile Pepper. I frequent cooking/food websites and watch a lot of food/cooking shows on TV. Your standard "home cooking" I can do without a recipe but I like to push myself in new directions.
I rarely go out to eat when I'm at home, I can make it better and cheaper at home. Sadly I don't get to cook as much as I like since I travel so much.
Anyone else here consider themselves a "Foodie"?
You know... fine dining, loves to cook, always looking for the next good recipe, can't wait for the next new episode of Chopped?
I'm not a foodie.
I don't do fine dinning. I mainly stick with the everyday restaurant. Because I'm picky on my food and don't have a great taste buds, as much I wish I could.
I can somewhat cook, I am willing to try new things within reasons and the only shows I watch on food network are the game shows.
i enjoy cooking/bbqing and do it often but i also do not make full fledged meals very often. if its just me ill cook a steak and just eat it by itself. usually only if i am with family will i make all the fixins/sides. although i dont eat out fancy i am very picky with the trash food that i do eat. i do enjoy various cooking shows. mostly the ones that involve gordon ramsay.
