Food is so much more than sustenance. It’s culture, history, ritual on a plate. How and what people eat can provide us with deep insight about them and where they come from. The old adage, the way to a man’s – amended to the way to a person’s heart (because it’s 2018) – is through their stomach is not an exaggeration. A person who loves food is a precious being, because not only do they know the best places in town, but also they are the easiest people to please. Give them something delicious and they will be filled with joy. And if you’re lucky to be married to someone who loves food then you’re going to have a delicious journey for the rest of your life. Here are six signs that you’ve married a foodie.
1. Forget ambience
Your spouse cares more about the taste of the food in a restaurant, than the fancy ambience when you go on a date. They don’t care that there are plastic chairs and no cutlery. As long as you are next to them and the keema is perfectly seasoned, they’re having the best date of their lives. These spouses also care more about the flavour of the popcorn than the ratings of the movie you are going to watch together.

2. Menu be the most important
Any function that you’re hosting, whether it is a house party or a puja at home your spouse always asks about the menu. They understand that having chicken tikka at a party is a sign of a good party, and that no puja is complete without the mithai from your local halwai. They are the reasons your functions are well catered, to be honest.

3. Next meal on the mind
Every meal in your house eventually ends up being a discussion about what the next meal will consist of. Be careful, if your spouse is not the only person who’s asking this question, you may have married into a family of foodies!
Your spouse’s Instagram is dominated by pictures of you two, your pet and/or kids and food. Okay, to be honest, it’s just that one picture of you two with your pet, the rest are shots of the meals they had. Food is the central point of your spouse’s world and you have to just tag along with it.
You know something is seriously wrong when they say they don’t want to eat. They also will be susceptible to being ‘hangry’ more often than others. Hangry is a wonderful word which explains what a majority of foodies experience. Anger brought on by hunger. The fastest way to calm them down is to offer them their favourite treat and hope for the best.
When you can count on them to give more thought to the food you two order in a restaurant than your anniversary gift. Remember, giving them food or some kind of kitchenware for the anniversary is always the best idea. Imagine the look on their face when you bring home the best brownie in town as a surprise.
PS. While it is true that being married to a foodie can mean you’ll be centring your life around how to eat and what to eat, you can count on there being deliciousness always!
