Food plays such an important part of our lives, it is often hard to pin point at which point an individual goes from simply part taking in food, to becoming a foodie, in the sense of the appreciation of food. For some of us it is something that we acquire with time, while others it is such an intrinsic part of life from the onset, being a foodie is just a part of daily life.
This would be the case of my father, Fred. The term ‘foodie’, to him would be as foreign as the concept; for him it just a way of life and always has been. For this reason I would like to make him the first Regional Foodie profile.
Food, for me, is as much about the experience as it is about the pleasure of actually eating. It calls into play all of the senses; sight, sound, taste, touch and smell and added to the mix is the environment in which it all takes place. It is a series of indulgences, moments savoured and memories created, and the added bonus is it keeps us nourished. Of course it has to be good. I have no tolerance for the mediocre, the less than average or god forbid, downright bad.
