A person who enjoys eating food, unlike everyone else, who hates food, thinks it's disgusting, and would never consider eating it.
Person #1: I'm a foodie, I love eating food!
Person #2: Wow, you're so unique. I hate food and wouldn't eat it even if I had to to stay alive.

A dumbed-down term used by corporate marketing forces to infantilize and increase consumerism in an increasingly simple-minded American magazine reading audience. The addition of the long "e" sound on the end of a common word is used to create the sensation of being part of a group in isolationist urban society, while also feminizing the term to subconsciously foster submission to ever-present market sources.

Though the terms "gastronome" and "epicure" define the same thing, i.e. a person who enjoys food for pleasure, these words are perceived by the modern American consumer as elitist due to their latin root forms and polysyllabic pronunciations.

Also spelled "foody"

A person who self-identifies as such because they think you might be interested to know that they enjoy a wide variety of food from all around the globe and frequent expensive eateries. Poor people cannot be foodies.
Foodie: I'm a foodie.

Non-foodie: Oh.....awesome.

A person that spends a keen amount of attention and energy on knowing the ingredients of food, the proper preparation of food, and finds great enjoyment in top-notch ingredients and exemplary preparation.
A foodie is not necessarily a food snob, only enjoying delicacies and/or food items difficult to obtain and/or expensive foods; though, that is a variety of foodie.
Because he was a foodie, he liked to collect menus from restaurants which prepared food he enjoyed.

Either a 27 year old woman with a boob job, or a gay man with a great job. Both claim to have many friends that are also foodies. They see Rachael Ray have foodgasms and expect the same from Burger King.

They spend too much money trying to emulate food celebrities they see on Bravo, and do ridiculous activities like going out in a party of 10 to a Kobe beef tasting.

Essentially, if you call yourself a "foodie", you aren't one; or you aren't what you think it means. A firefighter would not walk up to a burning building, criticize the flames, and proclaim that he and his coworkers are firefighters.
"This restaurant sucked, me and all my friends are foodies, and my steak wasn't hot enough, and there were some sea salt crystals on my bread."

A foodie is Someone who THINKS they know something about food and the science of cooking. Or even the restaurant industry. Not knowing that cook who just sent out their Precious "Seared Ahi with Lemon Pepper Crotch Crickets en Crote" just got a BJ in the walk-in from your waitress. Who took your order with dick on her breath I might add. Also the reason she's perky tonite is not because she likes her job it's the COKE.
