Are you a Foodie?

I found this on Merriam-Webster’s dictionary. There is a term for those of us who are into the latest food fads. I would consider gourmet coffee as one so that makes us foodies!

“Foodie” is a relatively recent addition to our language (dating from the early 1980s), but it derives from a much older word, “food,” which has been with us for as long as there has been anything that could be called English. “Food” can be traced back through Middle English to the Old English form “fōda,” which is itself related to Old High German “fuotar,” meaning “food” or “fodder,” and Latin “panis,” meaning “bread.” “Panis” is the source for “empanada,” a Spanish turnover with a sweet filling, “panatela,” a type of cigar, “panettone,” an Italian bread containing raisins and candied fruit, and “pantry,” a room used for the storage of provisions.
