A gourmand is a person who takes great pleasure in food; a person given to excess in the consumption of food and drink; a greedy or ravenous eater. The word has different connotations from the similar word gourmet, which emphasises an individual with a highly refined discerning palate, but in practice the two terms are closely linked, as both imply the enjoyment of good food.

An alternative and older usage of the word is to describe a person given to excess in the consumption of food and drink, synonymous with a "glutton" or a "trencherman".
