The road to foodie-ism is paved with books

  1. As a lover of words, it’s interesting to me that we’ve ended up with ‘foodism’ and ‘foodist’ as a synonym for ‘gourmand’. I have strongly negative associations with ‘ism’ and ‘ist’, particularly when it comes to movements and choices. There’s ‘sexism’ and ‘racism’, and so forth. On the other hand, I guess there’s ‘nudism’ and ‘feminism’, which obviously aren’t societal ills. Maybe it’s because I hear the negative ‘isms’ more than the positive ones?
