I find the term “foodie” rather cringe-worthy, but web analytics being what they are, I have to use it over my preferred labels of “gastronome,” “epicurean,” or “culinary connoisseur” if I want the internet to register this has a haute-gourmand post as opposed to just another one of the gallery’s blog entries.
Having dined at nearly every Michelin Star restaurant in New York, attended numerous underground supperclubs, slaughtered my own animals, and passed the Certified Sommelier exam, I feel I can speak with authority on food. And so, today I choose to bring you the best of the best food-and-wine related posters in our Sunday auction (i.e. posters for foodies).
I actually have a champagne poster by this artist in my dining room, and I’m seriously tempted to switch it out for this one. Sitting in the smoking section aside, I would give my left pinky to be able to dine with this fellow, in that hat, being served by that gloved-waiter with a permanent five-o’clock shadow. I’m guessing this is the after dinner pass-the-fruitbowl-white-I-smoke course.
Do you have a fetish for Negronis and dimly-lit bars? I certainly do. Why not turn your living room into one?
If you just frame a picture of a plate of cookies and put it on your wall, people will think you’re a closet fattie who binge eats while watching reruns of My 600 Pound Life. If you hang up this poster for vanilla wafers, you’re a fine-art connoisseur with a refined taste for dainty snacks.
Do you get wasted on Jagermeister more times than you’d care to remember? Well, actually, you probably don’t remember – but hey, neither do I! This poster advertises its similarly-flavored cousin, but makes you look hella classy.
I may not drink beer, but you probably do – and what better way to look like a serious aficionado than having the original Guinness ad on your wall? Your boyfriend will never breakup with you.
Ok, so there was a time when I spent many of my evenings decked out in cocktail attire in the hollowed halls of London’s Ritz Hotel. I swear this is the head waiter I saw there every night, chaffing dish never out of reach, ready to prepare old school delicacies tableside while my diamonds glistened in the candlelight.
If you’re at all up on your wine trends, you’ll know yellow wine from the Jura is totally hot right now. It’s one of the longest-lasting wines in the world, meaning that you can drink a bottle from the 1930s and it will still be delicious.
Look super refined as you express your love for high-quality coffee.
