Ten Types of Foodies

This was a cute piece I just saw on the Top Ten Types of Foodies and the Remedy to each one.

  1. Being honest and objective, I probably belong to type 1, type 10, and type 6.

    I like to make foods on my own. In fact, a very major reason for me to eat out is to learn and to see if I can make the same dishes. Basically, eating out help set a bar and an example for me to reach for.

    On the other hand, I lean more toward type 6 than type 5. Not so much about food carts, but I love the more down to earth food, like southern barbecue, a nice bowl of Chinese congee, Korean Banchan.... you get the idea.

    1. Lol, that was cute. :)

      I'm a #10. And my sprouts are fantastic. I will admit to occasional dehydrator fiascoes.

      1. I think myself a combo of 1, 6, 8 and 10.

        Fun article. Thanks for sharing, alkapal! :)

        1. Thanks for the article! I'm probably 1, 6 and 10. I can be 7 at home (the rules fly out the window when I go out to eat). And I don't think I'm 3, but pronounce Nutella in a bit of a Euro way.

            LOL -- as i read the article, i'm actually sounding out in my mind how many variations there might be of the pronunciation of "nutella. "

            1. re: alkapal

              I could only come up with about 2, possibly 3 (and I used to work at the World Bank, so I know from accents!).

          2. I'm a bit of 1, 5, 6, and 10. I tend to make sauces and some bar supplies DIY and cook everything (Most of it is easy to make). I can't decide if I snob or anti-snob. I'm a snob about some things, others, I'm an anti-snob.
