The World Food Travel Association creates a way for everyone to enjoy World Food Travel day from home.
As a reason to create and enjoy global local cuisines, World Food Travel Day is celebrated on 18th April. Starting in 2019, this year will see the second event celebrated differently to the first as people across the world stay at home.
Anyone can join in, participators are being asked to feature their favourite food and drink experiences from their local area, experiences that they believe visitors to the area should try whilst travelling. Everyone is also encouraged to share their favourite culinary experiences from their own travels anywhere in the world.
The images should be shared on social media, across Instagram, Twitter or Facebook on Saturday 18th April labelled #WorldFoodTravelDay and @WorldFoodTravel.
The World Food Travel Association (WFTA) was founded in 2001. Promoting their Eat Well, Travel Better slogan, the non-profit organisation is recognised as a world leader in culinary tourism, uniting consumers and traders through food hospitality and tourism.
@TheRucksackNews and #therucksacknews can also be added to food images for World Food Day before reading about vegan tours in Asia, chocolate and nougat making in Spain, the history of olive oil in Catalonia, what visitors to the Balearic Island of Menorca should try, about Greek wine, Polish pierogi, the home of port wine, when maple sugaring season is, the ideas behind Tokyo’s travel cafe and traditional foods of Georgia. If that isn’t enough there is also a selection of cookery class experiences to join worldwide.
