Gastronomy is central to any kind of travel and is considered as the gateway to understand another culture. Experience of tourists with local food has an enduring impact about a destination even long after the trip (Hall & Mitchell, 2002: Hall, Sharples & Smith, 2003: Henderson, 2009). Realising the potential of gastronomy, more and more tourist places around the world are positioning themselves as gastronomic tourism destinations (Zurab Pololikashvili Secretary-General, Guidelines for the Development of Gastronomy Tourism, World Tourism Organization, UNWTO, 2019). Gastronomy has become one of the main reasons to travel and one third of tourists total expenditure is on food during travel (World Tourism Organization and Basque Culinary Center, 2019, Guidelines for the Development of Gastronomy Tourism, UNWTO, Madrid).
