Hi, I’m Anna. Join me on my journey to become The True Foodie. My surname is Trueman, so I’m half way there in the ‘true’ sense of the word, but what is a foodie?
According to Wikipedia (a very reliable source of course!), a foodie ‘seeks new food experiences as a hobby, rather than simply eating out of convenience or hunger’. Well, that’s me.
Or could a foodie be someone who only eats organic, would turn their nose up at a Five Guys burger, and only ‘dines’ in restaurants that have added a 12.5% service charge to the bill? Well, that’s…..not me. I eat everything and anything, enjoy a good burger, and prefer to pay whatever great service deserves.
The urban dictionary (another solid source of information) defines a foodie as ‘a douchebag who likes food’. Again….not something I’m aiming to be!!!
So what is a True Foodie? On my journey I’ll be learning how to cook, debugging types of food that I don’t know about, like ‘buckwheat’, ‘spelt pasta’ and ‘dulse’ (?). I’ll also be reviewing restaurants and sharing some of my own food traditions.
I hope you’ll stay tuned and join me on my journey to become The True Foodie.
