Although the term ” Gastronomy tourism ” or “food travel” has only been used recently in the industry, but love for the local food has been there since the beginning. On the hand , there are many who don’t mind driving hundreds of kilometres , just to enjoy the authentic taste of local cuisine. The location , the weather and the right food on your table makes a vacation perfect. How many times we remember eating a delicious local food on a particular location no matter how many decades ago!
This is proven fact now that there is a sharp increase in food tour companies globally since the last decades. The choice of food and beverage has been a main motivational factor for travelers all around the world to choose a destination over others. Weather it is just a few hours drive from your home by the side of a highway eatery for alu paratha with white curd or sipping your favourite Singapore sling at Skinny’s Lounge or losing yourself in the cheesy delight of Tex-Mex in Texas – every small and big experience add to a memory that one can treasure for life.
Food tourism is composed of activities that provide experiences of consumption and appreciation of food and beverages, presented in such a way that value the history, the culture and the environment of a particular region.
