My husband and I are foodies.  He is terribly serious, he cooks (even the complicated recipes that I would never consider) and he has even entered the Chili Cookoff and the Rib Burnoff (who does that stuff?).  He built a smoker out of a commercial hot water heater, he can smoke 60 pounds off pork butt at a time, and we have friends that call him and ask if they can buy a pork butt and have him smoke it.  Me, I'm a one pot chef, sauces and soups, but I'm a great eater!

We are casual diners, since we both have our own businesses we would rather be casual but we are on the picky side because we hate it when we pay to eat out and are disappointed.
