gourmandism (uncountable)

  1. A passion for and deep interest in good food.
    • 1825, Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste,
      When gourmandism turns into gluttony, voracity, or perversion, it loses its name, its attributes, and all of its meaning, and becomes fit subject for the moralist who can preach upon it or the doctor who can cure it with his prescriptions.
