Ideas have no value unless they are shared – they are not meant to be hoarded, and distributed only for the benefit of the individual.
Foodosophy follows the same basic principles – our knowledge is freely shared and distributed. As Foodosophers, our responsibility is to spread our experiences and ideas to as many interested people as possible.
Who are we? Just a collection of people who love food. We hope you enjoy our experiences as much as we do.
Foodosopher has a passion for food and travel. Willing to try anything once (or any number of times really), he travels the world searching out new food experiences. At home, he has eschewed overly fussy, fine dining for good, simple, solid food, with clear flavours and a well-communicated purpose.
Shokutsu enjoys feeding his appetite for well-prepared cuisine in his daily life as well as during his frequent globetrotting adventures as he explores foreign cultures and cuisine. Armed with his digital sidearm, he enjoys capturing his discoveries through visual images and actively seeks out public forums in which they can be shared.
Almattone enjoys food from all corners of the world, preferably while visiting said corner but also at outposts near home. Great food comes in all shapes and sizes – not to mention prices and levels of intestinal risk.
Prefectionist is all about good food, good wine, and good company. As a recent transplant to the west coast, he is eager to explore the smells, tastes, and adventures that the region has to offer. He hopes to provide fresh insight into the local food and restaurant scene, as the newest member of the Foodosophy Team.
GastronomyDomine has an insatiable curiosity to explore all forms of ethnic foods in his home city of Vancouver, BC. He loves to scour the city for those small, often family-run ethnic restaurants that serve honest food cooked without pretension and fuss.
Interloper mainly discovered a passion for food through the culinary interests and aspirations of his wife, and a Sommelier friend from the UK who strikes a perfect balance between passion for the industry and cutting through the pretense which surrounds it with a sense of humour as only he can. If his liver could talk, Interloper’s would tell tales of dealing with the various and sundry styles of beer from around the world which have been imbibed over the years. His tastes in food are all over the map, which fits well with the cultural diversity of his home city, Toronto.
O-toro is on a lifelong search for his perfect meal. This quest has led to some exotic, many questionable, and back to basics meals. He hopes to share some experiences with this team of fellow foodies. Happiest when eating – he will try to put down his fork long enough to share his thoughts.
You eat food. I eat food. You drink coffee to stay awake. I drink and make it for a living. What we eat isn’t just about sustaining life. Taste, appearance, texture, context, emotion – it’s all a part of what everyone loves about food and drink. But I might just think about and love it all just a bit more than you…
