You know the type… The one who stands on their chair at a restaurant to snap a picture of their avocado toast. The one who can discuss at length every texture, flavor and scent in their dish. The one who books a weekend away to explore new restaurants over anything else. We call them foodies and they are a special breed! They see that food is art and it’s a central part of their lives.
