The rise of the experience economy has ushered in a growing role for food experiences in tourism. This review of recent developments in the field of food and tourism experiences underlines the ways in which food experiences can be adapted to meet tourist needs, how culinary tourism can play a role in local development, create new tourism products, stimulate innovation and support marketing and branding. The tourist desire to seek out new and novel food experiences is examined, together with the desire for authenticity in food experiences. The chapter concludes with implications for policy and suggestions for further research.
