Gastronomic tourism: what is it?

Gastronomic tourism is a trip undertaken to discover the gastronomic or culinary wealth of a country or region. It includes activities such as tasting local dishes, visits, purchases (cooking utensils, rare ingredients, etc.), courses or walks. The culinary journey also offers the opportunity to discover stories, cultures, culinary methods, and exquisite meals.
Often, food travellers love themed meals: i.e. with a history or a specificity. They enjoy the typical meals of the region or country as they are prepared. Gastronomic tourism not only awakens the taste buds, but also involves the other senses. These include local atmospheres, euphoria and special practices.
