Is there such a thing as a "great eater"? And if there is, what does it mean?

When someone says, "she's a great cook" we all sort of know what that means -- at least generally.

But what about the phrase "great eater"?

Does that phrase even make sense? If it does, what does it really mean?

How does a person define what a "great eater" is?

Is it someone like Andrew Zimmern who's intrepid and unabashedly curious?

A glutton like, say, Paula Deen or Adam Richman?

A (supposed?) savant like Frank Bruni or Ruth Reichl?
