Finding comfort (in) food in Vancouver
I am not a “foodie.” Until a little while ago, I wasn’t even sure what a foodie was. So, I looked it up.
Wikipedia defines foodie as “an informal term for a particular class of aficionado of food and drink.” But I would never call myself an “aficionado” because then I might have to double-check the definition of that too.
Answers.com gives three helpful definitions for foodie:
1. n. slang. A person who has an ardent or refined interest in food; a gourmet.
Although I have an ardent love of food, I would hardly call my taste refined.
2. n. Someone who is interested in foods, cooking, and the latest food and restaurant fads.
Of course I am interested in foods and cooking! However, I could care less about food or restaurant fads. If anything, I’m seeking to recreate the magical food moments of my youth. I want to go back, not forward.
3. n. A person who takes pleasure in the preparation, presentation, and eating of food. The term is sometimes used in a pejorative sense to describe someone who is always searching for new, exotic taste sensations.
Well, this definition is starting to get closer to the truth,and yet I’m not sure my search for the world’s best mac’n'cheese could be called a search for a new and exotic taste sensation.
