What exactly is a foodie anyway? Come to find out it's any person who has a special interest in food, not only out of hunger but almost as a hobby. It's someone who enjoys fine dining and great food experiences. Foodies normally enjoy discovering new recipes and trying new dishes with new enticing flavors.

I don't know about you but I would consider myself a foodie and I can tell you, it can get expensive. According to an article from Wallet Hub, going out to eat at restaurants rose 8% from August 2021 to August 2022. Cooking a gourmet meal at home is getting more expensive too as the prices at the grocery store rose 8.3%.
