Round-Up: Monday, June 28, 2010

Serious Eater: I'm often called a foodie, but no one really likes that name. The term "gourmand" isn't going to make a comeback anytime soon. I'm still a fan of the term "serious eater," which is how I would classify myself if I had to come up with an explanation beyond "I spend way too much time and energy thinking about food"

Definition by French chef Fernand Point in 1949 in The New Yorker:
My friends were "serious eaters"; they loved truly good food and scorned the snobbism of self-appointed "gourmets" and one-dish amateur cooks. They didn't consider themselves gourmets, but they would confide to each other, with the air of brokers divulging something hot in the market, the addresses of good restaurants.

Does that mean I can't call you a foodie anymore? I feel like if I say you're a serious eater, people will think I'm saying you eat too much/often.
