A good "foodie" friend is one who......

[moved from General Topics]

brings you back a great bottle of olio nuovo from their recent trip to Tuscany when your stash from your last visit has dwindled. The oil my friend brought back for me was bottled December 1st and is as green as a new dollar bill.

    ....will travel with you for a good meal.

    ....will listen to you when you've had a good meal.

        1. ...will get excited over a handmade grilled sardine sandwich with Swiss Gruyere cheese, garlic, herbs and a splash of extra virgin olive oil...on a sourdough roll.

            That's oddly specific. Do you often eat that?

            1. re: Glencora

              Often enough, if I can assemble the right ingredients.

          2. ... won't let his friends go out with guys who take them to chain restaurants.

                Will you be my friend?! ;-)

                If only... I have no foodie friends... poor Katie Nell... :-(

                  I don't have any foodie friends either. All of my friends are picky eaters. Either vegetarians or don't like seafood or meat or ethnic food, etc. Sad.

                    Of course! I do have one foodie friend that I seriously email all day with mostly about food. But I don't have that many foodie friends either, I feel your pain!

                      What do you suppose the posters here are? Chopped liver?

                      1. re: yayadave

                        Well... maybe chopped foie gras!! ;-) Seriously, I love my online friendships, but it's not quite the same.
