My brother Steve is a self-described “Foodie.” However, when I look up that term in Wikipedia, I find the following entry:
“Foodie is an informal term for a particular class of aficionado of food and drink. The word was coined in 1981 by Paul Levy and Ann Barr, who used it in the title of their 1984 book “The Official Foodie Handbook.”
Although the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably, foodies differ from gourmets in that gourmets are epicures of refined taste, whereas foodies are amateurs who simply love food for consumption, study, preparation, and news. Gourmets simply want to eat the best food, whereas foodies want to learn everything about food, both the best and the ordinary, and about the science, industry, and personalities surrounding food.”
Whether Steve is a foodie or a gourmet, of one thing I’m sure, he is a photographer. I always say that I may have more photo equipment than Steve, but he has more talent. You can view samples of his art in Steve’s gallery at ForrestFotos.com.
Steve makes several trips each year from his home in Brunswick, Maine, to Advocate Harbour, Nova Scotia. That area with its amazing views of the Bay of Fundy and friendly folks is inviting to all. One of its main attractions for Steve is that his favorite restaurant, the Wild Caraway Restaurant and Café is there.
Steve combined his photo skills with his love the the Wild Caraway by creating a photo book for Andrew Aitken and Sarah Grievel, its proprietors. That book can be viewed by clicking on the link or its cover below.
