The National Trust´s definition of cultural heritage tourism is
"traveling to experience the places and activities that
authentically represent the stories and people of the past and
present. It includes historic, cultural, and natural resources."
Culinary Tourism is defined as the pursuit of unique and
memorable eating experiences. It differs from Agritourism in
that Culinary Tourism is considered a subset of Cultural
Tourism (Cuisine is a manifestation of culture) where as
agritourism is considered a subset of Rural Tourism. Culinary
Tourism is about what is unique and memorable, not what is
necessarily pretentious and expensive.
