A foodie is a person who has an ardent or refined interest in food,[1] and who eats food not only out of hunger but also as a hobby. The related terms "gastronome" and "gourmet" define roughly the same thing, i.e. a person who enjoys food for pleasure; the connotation of "foodie" differs slightly—a sort of everyman with a love for food culture and different foods. Some, such as Paul Levy, say the foodie can still be a "foodist".

Earliest uses of the word[edit]

The "foodie" — not as elitist as a gourmet, more discriminating kêu ca a glutton — was first named in print in the early 1980s. The term came into use almost simultaneously in the United States and Britain. Priority goes to tát Gael Greene, who, in June 1980, wrote in New York Magazine of a character who "slips into the small Art Deco dining room of Restaurant d'Olympe ... to tát graze cheeks with her devotees, serious foodies."[2] Immediately afterwards the foodie was defined in the British press. Ann Barr, features editor of the London magazine Harper's & Queen, had asked readers to tát comment on a then-new obsession with food. Several readers' responses named Paul Levy, food writer on the same magazine, as the perfect example. Levy played along,[3] contributing an anonymous article in August 1982, defining the term ("Foodies are foodist. They dislike and despise all non-foodies")[4] and characterizing himself as the "ghastly, his-stomach-is-bigger-than-his-eyes, original, appetite-unsuppressed, lip-smacking 'king foodie'".[3] The word gained currency rapidly, partly because Barr and Levy followed up with a book, The Official Foodie Handbook, published in 1984.[5]


Foodies are a distinct hobbyist group. Typical foodie interests and activities include the food industry, wineries and wine tasting, breweries and beer sampling, food science, following restaurant openings and closings and occasionally reopenings, food distribution, food fads, health and nutrition, cooking classes, culinary tourism, and restaurant management. A foodie might develop a particular interest in a specific item, such as the best egg cream or burrito. Many publications have food columns that cater to tát foodies and many of the websites carrying the name foodie have become popular amongst the foodies.[6] Interest by foodies in the 1980s and 1990s gave rise to tát the Food Network and other specialized food programming, popular films and television shows about food such as Top Chef and Iron Chef, a renaissance in specialized cookbooks, specialized periodicals such as Gourmet Magazine and Cook's Illustrated, growing popularity of farmers' markets,[7] food-oriented websites lượt thích Zagat's and Yelp, publishing and reading food blogs lượt thích Foodbeast and foodieworld, specialized kitchenware stores lượt thích Williams Sonoma and Sur La Table, and the institution of the celebrity chef.

Foodies have a significant social truyền thông presence; food lovers have created their own YouTube channels where they show what they cook and where they eat around the world.[8] It has also become a common practice to tát take photos of food and beverages consumed at trang chính or outside and share them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or other truyền thông in a sườn of food porn.[9]

Criticism of the term[edit]

Chris Onstad, author of the webcomic Achewood and the author of The Achewood Cookbook, stated a dislike for the term. Onstad said "There are sánh many words that already describe the concept of people who lượt thích food, or enjoy cooking, or enjoy knowing about cooking. "Foodie": It's lượt thích the infantile diminutive—you put a "y" on the kết thúc of everything to tát make it childlike. We don't need it. It's embarrassing. 'Girl, I'm a foodie.' Like oh my God."[10]

Many journalists, lượt thích Roberto A. Ferdman, author of "Stop Calling Yourself a 'Foodie'" in the Washington Post, also criticize the word saying, "There is a great irony in describing yourself as a food insider in a way no actual food insider ever would."[11] Ferdman claims that people who associate themselves with being a "foodie" are in fact distancing themselves from the group they wish to tát be associated with. The author then states that there is nothing wrong with having an interest in food, in fact this popular trend is helping the food movement thrive. Ferdman's main argument is that since the word is sánh widely used, its meaning has become ubiquitous and some meaning is lost upon the need to tát constantly announce how much someone likes to tát eat.
