Are you a Foodie?

The art of cooking produces the dishes, but it is the art of eating that transforms them into a meal." Marcella Hazan, writer

According to Wikipedia Foodies are,
"a distinct hobbyist group in the United States। Typical foodie interests and activities include the food industry, wineries and wine tasting, food science, following restaurant openings and closings, food distribution, food fads, health and nutrition, and restaurant management."

Coming home from school as a child, I could smell my Mother's cooking as soon as I stepped in our apartment building. She would make Lasagna with ground beef and sweet sausage from the local A&P. She'd squeeze the meat out of the sausage and mix all the meat together. "It made the ground beef taste better," she would say. She was right! To me she was the best cook in the world and my first teacher.

I started foodie Hub to reach out to other Foodie's who love to share thier love of food. If you have an interest in the tasting preparation and just the love of food you have come to the right place.

Hoping to hear from you!
