Seattle Foodie-ish.

Often seemingly out of nowhere ~ my foodie self appears. Enthralled by the local food scene, and the community that surrounds it, a mood will strike and I will find myself hearting up Instagram posts ranging from sugar coated baked goods to health/environment focused Meat Free Monday meals (say that one five times fast).

A few months back, I attended a Seattle Foodies Instameet and since then I have been thinking more about the role of food and community building in the age of Instagram.

I have followed a number of local foodiesΒ and have begun to seek out unique cuisine in my travels. I have learned new hashtag lingo. I am delighted to see that a good food snap can lead to an interesting cross cultural or cross neighborhood dialogue/meetup.

Naturally, when IΒ learned a Pie Instameet at A La Mode Pies was going to be led by my delightful friendΒ Seattle Dessert Geek aka Jess Tupper I knew this was a chance to be part take part in something especially delicious. Every time I hang w/ Jess I seem to find myself consuming food that is wonderful, unique, and memorable… Also, I like pie ~ basically because I’m human.

Call It Like You See It

Truth About Instagram

While people do complain about a world filled with people,Β “just posting pictures of food online”, I have seen friendships and professional growth develop through Internet foodie culture. Β For me,Β becoming a #SeattleFoodie is an entirely delicious experience.
