Foodie! That’s a word you’ve probably seen more than a few times on the Beijinger (especially in the runup to our International Foodie Weekend, happening Aug. 13-14 at Sanlitun Soho). Yes, it’s perhaps overused, but what exactly does the word mean, and who exactly qualifies as a foodie?

Merriam-Webster defines the word simply as: “A person who enjoys and cares about food very much.” And although we agree with the definition, it’s a bit too broad for my liking. What if we said: a hipster is a person who enjoys and cares about being hip. Doesn’t help much, does it?

Hence, in the run-up to next week’s International Foodie Weekend, we’ve come up with this quiz, which you can take by simply clicking here. And, much like most the fare being offered next week, the quiz itself is bite-sized: there’s just 12 questions (all without annoying advertisements interspersed between questions – if you still use Yahoo! then you'll know what I’m talking about). 

So go on, take our Foodie Quiz, and find out where, exactly, you lie on the foodie spectrum.
