Mission Statement

This is perhaps our most important practice area, because culinary culture legitimizes the very reason for food & beverage lovers to travel. It is also our Association’s main mission.

The mission of this practice area is to preserve and promote culinary cultures vis-a-vis tourism and hospitality.  We observe and analyze the relationships among gastronomy, culture, and tourism, and advance thought leadership in this area. 

"Food for Thought"

Without culinary culture, there is no reason to travel for food and drink. This concept includes the intersection of our heritage, traditions, and customs with the food we grow, prepare, consume, and share.
