List Rules Vote up the most accurate indicators that someone is, in fact, annoyingly into food.

Listen, you can enjoy making, eating, and thinking about food as much as you want, but you have to be self-aware of the parts of your personality others find annoying to the nth degree. So here's a brutally honest list for foodies who need to check themselves, or a utility for those who need to tell the douchier foodies they know "Hey, maybe dial it back a little."

Everyone who cooks at home is guilty of getting up their own ass about their method (or technique, or steez) so don't think of this list as a hatchet job. This comes from a place of love, even if you do each and every one of these things. If it weren't for you, we'd all still be eating like savages or wild animals. But the thing is, you gotta remember to keep your culture amongst yourselves. Think of the kitchen as your BDSM dungeon. That said, get in on the action - vote up all the signs you're an annoying foodie. Own it with pride. 

There are no secrets here. These are all the things foodies who might actually be really great chefs, but are maybe a slight bit douchey, do. Vote and share this with love, not hate. Remember: foodies work really hard for almost no reason. It's all for love. Take in each and every one of these signs you're a douchey food lover, then get back to roasting your garlic heads.
