Are you a Foodie or a Gourmand?

I copied this fun-facts passage from Andrea the Gastronaut's blog:

Wikipedia says, “…foodies differ from gourmets in that gourmets are epicures of refined taste who may or may not be professionals in the food industry, whereas foodies are amateurs who simply love food for consumption, study, preparation, and news.

Gourmets simply want to eat the best food, whereas foodies want to learn everything about food, both the best and the ordinary, and about the science, industry, and personalities surrounding food.

For this reason, foodies are sometimes viewed as obsessively interested in all things culinary.”

Which are you, a foodie or a gourmand?
