Food tourism has grown and gained attention globally along with an increased awareness of gourmet-cooking, local food and culinary culture. Increasingly, travelers are choosing to connect to the places they visit, instead of only exploring the landscape and man-made structures.

Thus, restaurants strive to create dishes out of local ingredients.
