According to the great wide world of the internets, an epicure, or a foodie, is defined as below:

epicure – a person devoted to refined sensuous enjoyment (especially good food and drink)
foodie – informal term for a particular class of aficionado of food and drink

I would also like to take this opportunity to point out that I am not a foodie. I have never claimed to be, and given that A) my palete SUCKS and 2) I am a totally picky eater (read: hates mushrooms, seafood, and most melons) – I think that it would be completely impossible to ever BE a foodie.

I am okay with this.

However!  That doesn’t mean that I am not totally susceptible to the lure of the very greatest porn of all porns – FOOD PORN.  I have a collection of cookbooks that take up their very own entire bookshelf.  I love to watch Gordon Ramsay remake a restaurant so that they use fresh locally grown ingredients. Jon Taffer’s fleet of mixologists makes me swoon.  Every month when my little recipe magazine arrives, I get all kinds of giddy. If you want to make me completely and utterly happy, a gift certificate to Sur le table, Williams-Sonoma, or Dean and Deluca will do the trick, and then some.

Oh Dean and Deluca, how I love thee.  What I really don’t get though, is why they don’t have a location in Chicago. Seriously, they have locations in KANSAS for cripes sake.

Almost daily it seems now I’m getting emails from D&D. Which is fabulous. On top of that, the catalogs. OOOOOHH the catalogs.  When one arrives in the mail, and I see it sitting there in the box, I’m not ashamed to admit it – I get all kinds of giddy. Flushed, giggly, and totally impatient to just rip that baby open. I’ll spend seriously nearly an hour going through each and every page, looking at each item, imagining how it would be to order it, to have it in my home, oh the things I could do.

One of my favorite things from D&D is my spice rack. Oh I love my spice rack. You’d think I’d use it more. 🙂

 

So yeah, totally not a foodie. But still really love the foodie-type of things. 🙂
