The debate goes on. Chow looks at a familiar debate to anyone passionate about food. Is the term "foodie" a compliment or pejorative?
This sentence pretty much sums it up. "Be aware that the person asking the question may have... no idea that food can intersect with culture, history, politics, health, and the environment. To him, an interest in food still may be pretty much synonymous with a love of fine dining."
What do you think? Are you annoyed by the term foodie?
