What’s Chowhound's Not About Food Community?


The Not About Food community is a place for discussions that are only tangentially about food, or that aren’t about food but are related to food or dining in some way. The community’s title may be tempting, but it’s not meant to be a place for all of the various non-food interests of Chowhounds. It’s a place for us to redirect useful conversations that almost—but don’t quite—fit on other communities.

Discussions on Not About Food, particularly those about etiquette and relationships can sometimes get unpleasant. Please consider whether food is really central to the question or if it would be better suited to a relationship site before posting. If a thread descends into too many personal attacks, we may lock it.
