For the Learner, life is a shiny new book, full of new people, new stories, and new worlds to explore! Whether you identify as a researcher, history nerd, or pop culture buff, your inquisitive nature drives you to seek out the stories behind every dish.

For the Learner, food is a gateway to understanding, a lens through which to view the world, and a source of endless fascination!

Whether discovering historical recipes, attending cooking classes, or listening to food science podcasts in the kitchen, the Learner:

  • 😍 Delights in the joy of discovery,

  • 🤔 Ponders the *big* questions, and

  • 🌎 Relishes the thrill of learning something new.

In these moments of exploration and intellectual engagement, Learners are filled with a sense of curiosity, growth, and achievement.

This is because the Learner sees food as an endless source of knowledge, across history, culture, and science. With food, you have a ticket to discover the world and deepen your experience.

Your Unique Outlook and Skills

As a Learner, your unique outlook and skills set you apart. Curiosity, open-mindedness, and insight are the driving forces in your relationship with food. Your insatiable thirst for knowledge and understanding inspires others to approach food with a sense of wonder and curiosity.


Your Challenges

Since Learners are driven by a desire to understand and explore, they may sometimes struggle with information overload or feeling overwhelmed by the vastness (and sometimes vagueness) of food history. One of the biggest challenges that most Learners face is finding the balance between acquiring knowledge and applying it in practical ways. It’s crucial for Learners like you to prioritize hands-on experiences, seek out diverse perspectives, and embrace lifelong learning as a journey rather than a destination.

But beware of potential pitfalls. Isolation and perfectionism can hinder your progress and prevent you from fully exploring all that food has to offer. It’s essential to trust your instincts, embrace uncertainty, and approach learning with curiosity and the spirit of adventure.


Your Food Future

When it comes to your relationship with food, let your love of learning shine through. Be curious, inquisitive, discerning, and reflective. Explore new cuisines, experiment with different cooking techniques, and engage with food as a way to broaden your horizons and deepen your understanding of the world. 

Celebrate your Learner persona and let your thirst for knowledge guide you as you embark on a lifelong journey of curiosity and discovery. 

Get ready to dig into a banquet of unsung histories, unfamiliar traditions, and delicious discoveries!
