The 10 Types Of Foodies

Posted: 12/27/2011 1:00 pm

This is the latest installment from Foodie Underground.

When your friends start texting you photos of what they made for dinner and include only a list of ingredients, you know you have a food problem: You've turned into that person. If you're lucky, things will hold at that manageable minimum, but inch one crumb further, and you might soon be labeled a Food Snob, or worse, the in-house Europhile. Because for every style of food under the sun, there's a food personality to go with it. We've put together a guide to help you that's just perfect for navigating, and sometimes placating, the wide world of foodies.

Taking a cue from Martha Stewart, this is the friend who effortlessly whips together coq au vin at the drop of the hat, any hat. Is there anything they can't do? Yes: Admit that cooking takes time. Although you are used to them effusively detailing their latest creation -- "Who knew fennel would be so good with figs?" -- the truth is they're completely frazzled when they find they have over-committed themselves once again and now are up to their elbows in half made canapés. Unfortunately, Trader Joe's mini quiches are not an acceptable substitute, so the only answer is an overdose on homemade espresso shots. Hors d' oeuvres and the jitters, every time. Rx: a large glass of rosé.
