What's the difference between a gourmet and a gourmand?
Discretion. Pickiness. Taste. Knowledge. Put simply. A gourmet is a connoisseur of fine food and wine: a gourmand is one stop short of a glutton. Webster's dictionary kindly defines gourmand as "one who is excessively fond of eating and drinking."
