There are many ways to experience a new culture, a new country or even just a neighboring town. Travelling expands a person’s perspective and enriches his life. One of the best ways to experience and remember a destination or a journey is by enjoying the tastes particular to that place.
Exploring local foods is great way to experience a country or city. It’s also a great way to make a memory, as taste and smell are often the strongest triggers for the recall centers of the brain. Food tourism businesses are cropping up all over the world in response to the desire of tourists to engage their palettes while travelling.
Food tourism is a rapidly growing industry with many cottage businesses sprouting up in places near and far. One such business is Kingston by Fork, a company begun by a young entrepreneur named Julia Segal with help from The Entrepreneurship Centre’s Summer Company program. With a grant from this organization, Segal was able to cover her start-up expenses and launch into this exciting new trend in tourism.
Kingston by Fork offers two different walking tours that highlight the cuisine of the local area. Each one lasts for about two hours in total and the walking portion is not very strenuous. Tours go on rain or shine, as the food tastes just as good regardless of the weather. A customer tour can also be arranged as can private group tours for parties of 12 or more.
Some of life’s greatest memories are made over a great meal. Try incorporating the idea of food tourism on your next vacation or even your next trip into your own downtown.
