Tips for the Aspiring Foodie
A simple guide and easy tips to becoming a foodie! One cannot thing well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.
For Melissa Ruzylo of Huntington Beach, California, gourmet food is more than a casual interest. Ruzylo has investigated many of the most acclaimed restaurants and fine dining venues along the California coast.
Here are a few tips for those looking for fun food fare.
Don’t be afraid to try new things.
Try New Things
Some of the most delicious discoveries come from exploring new cuisines and experimenting with unusual flavor combinations to create something exceptional. Taking a chance on Thai-Cajun fusion cuisine or a new dish from a favorite restaurant can be the beginning of a new adventure in food.
Don’t forget about the small guys.
Street Food Vendor
While some chain restaurants may
offer delicious food at a reasonable price, most of the best finds in the foodie world come from independent establishments with one or two restaurants in the local area. These privately owned dining venues may specialize in French cuisine, Asian fusion or home cooking. Whatever the type of cuisine, fans of gourmet food can often discover new taste treats from these independent restaurants.
Home is where the heart is.
How To Be a Foodie
Eating well at home can be a less expensive way of enjoying the foodie lifestyle. Artisanal products like cheese, bread and specialty cooking oils can provide an elegant touch for any meal. Mixing salad dressings at home can save gourmet enthusiasts money over prepackaged products and often tastes fresher and better than those store-bought brands.
Melissa Ruzylo’s Huntington Beach residence allows her the luxury of grilling outside for most of the year. Basting grilled items with a select array of marinades can help to instill flavor and to create a dining experience fit for even the most particular foodie.
