Journal of Gastronomy and Tourism is a multidisciplinary journal inviting research contributions that imaginatively and comprehensively investigate dimensions of food and eating in relation to travel and tourism.

Food has always been an important component of the tourist experience. Tourists eat to survive, but they also consume to discover the place and the intrinsic environments of the visited region. Arousing all senses, food and drink items and the practice of gastronomy include an exhaustive amount of information of significance for both personal well-being and for socializing with others. Gastronomy urges individuals to get profoundly involved, and in recent years this is cleverly exploited in new food related tourism attractions such as food festivals and wine tasting trails, cooking experiences and competitions, open fields, farms and factories, etc. Gastronomy is much more than fine dining.

Gastronomic tourism is becoming a real player in the tourism market, and food and wine related services and events attract greater numbers of tourists each year. Food links into local and regional economies in multifaceted value chains, which includes agriculture, fisheries, food producers, a variety of media, entertainment, learning, research and numerous service providers. As a consequence the regeneration of rural economics, the discovery of local identity and the re-valuing of heritage and tradition can all flow from growing, processing, marketing, distributing eating and enjoying food and beverages. Food and gastronomy is however, also implicated in the process of globalization, typified by parallel trends: frantic small scale food diversification and massive gastronomic convergence. Other interesting contrasts consistently exist between authenticity and innovation.

The academic interest brings together scholarly perspectives from a range of disciplines -  from cultural anthropology, sociology, media studies, ethnography, hospitality, food studies, and history, advertising and marketing, to environmental science, rural studies, business management, economics, human geography, and political philosophy. Linked also with many contemporary perspectives in tourism research, including sustainability, ethics’, social justice and human rights. However, many aspects of gastronomy and tourism also appear grossly underexplored, among these: aesthetics, science, technology, innovation, health and human relations. More over, critical and philosophical approaches such as foodways, foodscapes and food movements are often weak on gastronomy and tourism underpinnings, which provides ample scope for innovative contributions in these areas of scholarship.

Journal of Gastronomy and Tourism  invites research contributions of a theoretical as well as empirical and practical nature with out specific disciplinary focus. The aim is to provide a source for cutting-edge thinking and evidence in an emerging field, and to be a forum for continuous development and discussion of matters interlinking gastronomy and tourism. The Journal is an academic publication but will also look to cover industry and education perspectives


Locations on the food menu


Journal of Gastronomy and Tourism invites brief (1 page) portrayals of interesting gastronomic hotspots with a significant tourism ingredient. These portrayals provide a possibility for readers among researchers and practitioners to get themselves acquainted with emerging and innovative food initiatives of interest for further inquiry and research, and with challenging places to visit. The locations may qualify for a presentation on the “Locations on the food menu”, if they demonstrate for example exceptional instances of food heritage reinvention, good use of collaborative measures among food stakeholders, new types of food trail designs, sustainable food management practices, novel ways of communication with customers, visionary food experience inventions, prospective foodway linkages, food in extraordinary tourism settings etc., etc. The section cannot be used for standard promotional purposes by destinations and food providers.

Anyone, for example destination management organizations, food and tourism associations, food and tourism project managers, researchers etc, can submit examples and text for this section of Journal of Gastronomy and Tourism. The cases are not included in the journal’s review systems, and decision about publication is taken by the Editor-in-Chief.
