When Food Equals Love

with one comment

There’s internet dating for foodies now. Clearly.

Ultimately, food can be sexy, but dating the foodie crowd? You can only take so many discussions about the merits of sparkling water and urban wineries. As Felicity Cloake of The Guardian put it, “does a foodie really need another foodie to be happy?”

I am not so sure.

George Bernard Shaw once said, “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.” If there are two of you with a love for food, there may not be so much room for the actual love part. And by that same token, if you’re in the business of dating, and you’re schmoozing foodies, you better know what you’re getting yourself into.

  1. I disagree! Or, actually, I don’t know about dating, but I would never dream of being married to somebody does not appreciate food like I do. It’s like casting pearls before swine! Of course, like with any love, one person in the couple can love food less than the other. Also, I am not talking about people who call themselves foodies only to be “cool”; I am talking about a lifetime interest and passion for food and a lifetime discovery process.
