I'm a lifelong vegetarian (but not a preachy one).
I love cheese, chilies, pistachios, and spices. And lots of other things, but, I can't emphasize enough that cheese is my true love.
Although I love to bake, I don't have a sweet tooth. I prefer working with chocolate and sugar to eating them.
If I could eat only one cuisine for the rest of my life, it would be a tight race between South Indian, which I grew up eating, and Thai (hold the fish sauce).
I get annoyed by people who drink coffee solely as a vehicle for caffeine - it's no better than drinking cheap booze just to get drunk. My burr grinder and French press don't get used every day, but when they do, I'm very happy.
I care deeply about food policy and fixing the broken American food system in which a hamburger at McDonald's costs less than a bunch of kale.
