26 signs that you’re a food snob

Post Thumbnail

If you’re the one everyone texts for restaurant recommendations and you spend a scarily large proportion of your pay cheque on food, you might just love food.

But if you also find yourself perusing the aisles of Whole Foods more often than Tesco and routinely making your own dip, then perhaps your love of nice food has crossed over into the realm of food snobbery. Don’t worry, no judgment here.

Here are the signs that you’re a food snob and proud.

1. You’ve always known how to pronounce quinoa, thank you.

2. Your potatoes are so organic they’re still covered in mud.

3. You know Lancashire, Cheshire and Caerphilly aren’t just places in the UK.

4. You think the phrase “gourmet burger” is an oxymoron.

5. You’d rather try laying an egg yourself than eat a non free-range one.

6. You think pumpkin, hemp, chia, and flax seeds are totally normal everyday food.

7. You call green grapes white grapes.

8. You’ve actually attended a food festival.

9. You use the words nigiri, maki and oshi when it comes to sushi.

10. You wince when people cover every meal in ketchup.

11. You’d rather dip Kettle Chips in hummus than Doritos in salsa.

12. You’d NEVER buy margarine – it’s real butter every time.

13. You turn your nose up that square, suspiciously orange, processed ‘cheese’ that turns up to every barbecue.

14. Instead of apples and bananas in your fruit bowl, there are papayas and guavas.

15. You know that the raw food movement isn’t “salad”.

16. You check the percentage of meat in sausages at the supermarket, but mostly buy them at the butcher.

17. There’s a bottle of truffle oil in your kitchen.

18. You wouldn’t dream of buying shop bought dip or pre-made salad dressing.

22. You have a subscription to Graze.

23. You also have a subscription to Abel&Cole.

25. Even with a hangover, you want gourmet food.

26. You own a juicer and fully intend to use it… one day.
