Aesthetics Wiki

Foodie is a gourmet or a person who has an ardent/refined interest in food and alcoholic beverages. It involves seeking new food experiences as a hobby rather than simply eating out of convenience or hunger. The Foodie aesthetic, however, is dedicated to showing off these foods in very aesthetically pleasing manners. You may also take note of the color combinations, plating arrangement, and composition in their photographs.

There are also multiple ways of engaging as a foodie, with different cuisines, trends, and likes. Multiple social media circles and cultures have content relating to food, and how the different foods are photographed and framed will also differ.

Bakery is a subgenre of foodie based around bakeries, bread, and confectioneries from bakeries. There is potential for it to cross over with Lovecore (because what says "I love you" more than fresh baked goods). There's even a mild home for Bakery aesthetics with the various Academia aesthetics because what better way to help you focus on studying (besides some chill music) than some baked goods and coffee?
