What is a Gourmand?
The word Gourmand has been around since the 15th century, and it originally referred to someone who was excessively fond of eating and drinking. However, in recent times, the word simply refers to “one who is heartily interested in good food and drink”.
It’s a softer version of Gourmet, which typically focus on fine dining, whereas a gourmand enjoys all kinds of food, whether it’s simple street food or a dinner at a renowned restaurant with Michelin stars.
Since we have a focus on travel as well, and we travel for food, the name is a natural reflection of this.
