March 21/365 Probably Not A Secret

I’ve grown to hate foodies. No one wants to see your pictures of tonight’s dinner. No one wants a recitation of the rare ingredients, or an extensive culinary sourcing noting organic or non-GMO certifications. Face it: nothing beats the aroma of a sun-warmed tomato or the sweetness of a tiny raw pea stolen from the garden.

  1. I completely agree. I had to temporarily unfollow a photographer on Facebook who goes on and on about his locally sourced gmo-free wheat that his wife home milled and made into spaghetti or his homemade apple cider that he created from a mother that was blessed by the Dali Lama.

  2. I do take pictures of food, usually because I’ll finish making a salad or something in a cast-iron pan and I think, Wow, that looks beautiful! And there’s always a camera or two handy. But I don’t go into details about the ingredients except maybe to say my son grew them, or I did. Oh, I once hooked a hot pad that read FOODIE, but that was for an online friend who mails big boxes of her homegrown Meyer lemons to me from California every winter, so I’m sure that doesn’t count. 🙂

  3. I’m a passive foodie: I don’t take pictures of food but I love looking at them, and learning about where the ingredients were sourced.

    P.S. Please don’t hate me! 🙂

  4. I must be hanging out with the wrong people. My facebook feed is full of wine snobs instead. I don’t care if you only have Veuve Clicquot in your morning mimosa.
