Mediators: Georgi Nedyalkov, Syuleyman Eldemir, Tanya Atanasova, Elisaveta Aleksandrova-Zangelmi.
All the tourist countries aspire to establish their national cuisine as an attraction. The most famous destinations for culinary tourism are France, Italy, Mexico, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan and other countries. They hold culinary festivals, days of local cuisine, culinary competitions.
Culinary tourism is an essential element of the cultural tourism system and is rapidly developing as a global trend. Because national foods and beverages are a manifestation of the traditions and culture of every nation, they have been created over the centuries and are continually enriched.
Culinary mastery is the only form of art that affects five human senses: vision, hearing, smell, taste, touch. Eating is always in the top 3 of your favourite tourist activities.
The World Culinary Tourism Association changed its name in 2013 to World Food Travel Association. The new term that is perceived is food travel.
The founders of the association believe that in this way all the interests, businesses and forms of expression affecting travel and delicious food  are reflected so clearly and correctly. They emphasize that the focus of the organization is more on the authentic, healthy and local food, not on the price and exclusivity of proposals.
