Foodies ... The Movie and Blog Love

I've met quite a few foodies over the years, mostly through the fabulous Steve Plotnicki, so I can't wait to see the documentary.








Okay, it might look a tiny bit pretentious based on the trailer, but we can all be a bit over-enthusiastic about things, can't we?

I've been taking part in Steve Plotnicki's Opinionated About Dining project since it's days as a forum, then as a reviewer on his survey for years now. Steve's innovation is to scrap the Zagat "one man, one vote" formula and replace it with an algorithm where people who eat out more often at good restaurants are deemed to be better informed dinners whose opinions are therefore weighted to be given priority: the more you eat out and the more you review restaurants, the more your opinion counts. Foodie 'dives' are considered just as important as chi-chi Michelin starred establishments.

His own blog is very opinionated, and his Instagrams will make you hungry ...



Here he is with the other subjects of Foodies at the Basque Culinary Center in San Sebastián, which makes me hope it will be released soon.

The beautiful woman next to Steve is Aiste Miseviciute, who writes my favourite food blog Lux Eat. Hers is one of the restaurant blogs I trust the most, and she regularly comes through London and reviews our food:
