Are you a gourmand? :)

Hi there, friends!

While browsing through the members' pages a few moments ago I came across a new word "gourmand". I saw the meaning of it and found it very interesting. What I like the most is the fact that I am a gourmand myself! ;)

Can you guess the meaning of this word without looking up in a dictionary and do you consider yourself a gourmand, too? :)

Image given below is a big clue! :)

P.S. I found the US pronunciation of gourmand easier than UK pronunciation. What about you? :)
