Food holds different meanings for different people. There are some that will travel to a new place just to try the local cuisine and there are those who will eat everything, and I mean everything edible or not, at least once in their life. We all have that one friend who won't let you touch the food no matter how hungry you are without taking a photo for Instagram and then there are those who live on salads. Some spend their entire salary on food, while some love concocting dishes at home.
Foodies are everywhere, and it would be unfair to flock them all under the same category. Ours is the age of rather peculiar foodies with unique food personalities.
So let us introduce you to the 9 types of foodies you definitely know. How many you can spot in your own circle?
Food can be expressive and therefore food can be art - Grant Achatz

'Wait! Don't touch the food. I haven't Instagrammed it yet!' Meet the foodie who goes all paparazzi on their food.
You could be dying of hunger, but all this foodie cares about is getting a good shot of her food for Instagram. The ritual before every meal is “Lights, Camera, Action!”. They're more concerned about finding 'Instagrammable' food and drinks than the actual taste of it.

This is the foodie who wants to taste everything on everyone's plate. They believe the food on someone else's plate tastes better than their own. They ogle at every stranger's food at restaurants, shamelessly ask the waiter what the next table is eating and take a bite from everyone's plate. Rarely does their one bite mean one bite!
This foodie loves wearing the chef's hat as much as he loves eating. He has the cooking talents of a grandma and the passion for food of an artisan chef!

A custom engraved recipe journal personalized with his name is what a DIY foodie needs to write down their 'inexpensive, tasty, and obviously more hygienic than a restaurant' recipes.
This foodie plans her entire day around food, bombarding everyone with one burning question, "What's for lunch, breakfast, and dinner?" Knowing what's cooking keeps her excited throughout the day.
