Food, being the linchpin of society is an intrinsic fragment of culture. Food in fact is closely interwoven with culture. Over time food has become an identity symbol of a particular culture. People todayremember and recognize a particular culture through different food items prevalent in a distinct cultural setting. Tourism in this context has a very important role to play. Tourism enables people across the globe to know and visualize various cultures and so is the case with food. Tourism enables people to reach out and enjoy the diversity of cuisines across the globe and develops a memory of a place, a culture based on that. Today food-based tourism is gaining universality and vogue as people are curious to explore and enjoy local cuisines. People are developing interest in knowing the history behind a particular food item and how it is prepared and what significance it holds in that very cultural setting. So, the paper aims to look into the close interrelations between food, culture and tourism, how it is developing over time and how it can contribute towards bringing out the histories of different cuisines hidden in our societies.
Key words:Food, Culture, Tourism, culinary history, gastronomy.
