You know you're an EGulleter when...

Recommended Posts

You know when you're an e-Gulleteer when every food item you see looks good to eat whether you know or not what it is. :smile:


Cooking is like a blank piece of paper, anything can happen.

when you want to eat/bake/cook something or need to buy a food-related item and the first thing you do is a search on eG to see what's already been written about it.

You know you are an EGer when you feel guilty about not taking pics of what you take out of the oven.

I hear you. Now my husband doesn't ask anymore why I have my camera in the kitchen and why it is constantly being recharged.

You know when you're an EGer when your youngest son asks if you can take a picture of him instead of the [ __________ ] *insert whatever appropriate food item.

when you allow an extra 24 hours in the research of whatever recipe you plan to try this weekend, because you want to make sure you get a good number of posts from others who have tried it on egullet.

When you post about eG on other forums that have nothing to do with cooking and people are actually interested after checking the site. And some even become members.

Right, Domestic Goddess?


"There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

When one of your worries about your upcoming wedding is that you won't have a chance to take pictures of the food... and you realise that your egulleteer sister/bridesmaid would be the perfect photographer for you.

When you skip the wedding (paying to feed all those other people is so expensive!), take a trip instead, and make the whole journey into a culinary tour.

When you view trips to visit friends and relatives across country as excuses for going to the best restaurants within 100 miles of their homes.

When your partner/housemates books are in stacks on the living room floor because your cookbook collection has taken over all of the shelves.

When you can't get out of a used bookstore without bringing 6 cookbooks with you, 5 of which you'll never cook from because they are novelty items like "The War-Time Edition Russian Cookbook for American Homes" from 1943 and the Campbell's "Cooking with Soup" cookbook from 1970 (horrifyingly great food photography).

When you head off to try a new restaurant and your first thought isn't "Damn, I forgot the map!" but "Damn, I forgot the camera!"

(I forgot both. Found it anyway and had a reasonably good meal without photographical documentation anyway.)

when a picture of uncooked meat makes your mouth water! :P

Try this one then, Onigiri. Took it at a friend's farm. These calves in rural Australia will be going to Japan and end up as wagyu beef :raz:

...when your boss always asks you on a business trip where the eG people said we should eat. :)

...when there isn't one "real" person you know, only other eGulleters, who would be as excited as you were at making your first duck confit (which I did last week. Yay!!! So yummy).

...when the first thing you plan for your upcoming vacation is where and what to eat

...when trips to new food/liquor stores require egullet research to be sure you know what to buy

...when you begin to realize how much $$$ egullet has cost you as you expand your collection of food, kitchen tools, liquor and cooking magazines!

...when friends and family start calling you the queen of the kitchen instead of offering to bring a dish or "let's just meet at a restaurant".

...when even simple trips to a local area become field trips to try a new restaurant or store.

...when friends and family start calling you the queen of the kitchen instead of offering to bring a dish or "let's just meet at a restaurant".

I've finally gotten my friends trained not to even bother asking if they can bring anything!

With only a few posts to my name, it's hard to say I'm truly an eGulleter yet, but I've been lurking like mad and my day isn't complete until I've read all of the new postings. But I think the truly litmus test must be whether you've read all 54 pages (or whatever it's up to) of the Dinner! thread. :blink:

But here's another one:

...when you own more than 10 varieties of salt and you're excited to go to a new store and discover a few more that you don't own...yet.


Feast then thy heart, for what the heart has had, the hand of no heir shall ever hold.

...when you dream about eGullet posts. And then wake up and think, "I have to post about this to the 'You know you're an eGulleter when...' topic!"

When you realize that on many days you've spent up to 8 hrs and more visiting France. Italy Japan, Spain, ect, ect. ect. And you've never left your keyboard. At times you've gone 6 or 7 levels deep into blogs.
