Food tourism and food culture
A food tourist could be someone who explores food and drink in their own neighbourhood or country.
They might be a street food devotee or make a bucket list of restaurants they want to eat at around the world.
Food tourism is about experiencing food wherever you are, from cooking classes to food trucks to wine tours and foodie weekends. Food tourists enjoy the discovery of foods they haven’t tried before, they want to explore the world one plate at a time.
Food tourism is about discovering where our food comes from, what does it mean to other cultures. It’s about exploring food in all its glory and learning its history, its meaning and its effect on cultures different from our own.
