According to Lucy M. Long, folklorist and professor at Bowling Green State University, culinary tourism is about "exploratory eating." Long, who coined the term, writes that "culinary tourism... is about individuals exploring foods new to them as well as using foods to explore new cultures and ways of being. It is about groups using food to 'sell' their histories and to construct marketable and publicly attractive identities, and it is about individuals satisfying curiosity."
