EnhanCing Sustainable ToUrism Development througH Culinary HeritAge
The main goal of the project is to contribute to the development of tourism through strengthening and preservation of the common culinary heritage within programme area. Food is a cultural domain within the intangible cultural heritage that has yet to become officially recognized. Traditional ways of producing and consuming food in the cross-border area are at risk of extinction due to the growing globalization and internationalization of the food market. As a response, the CUHaCHa project develops a new tourist offer based on the creation and promotion of common culinary heritage trails. Through specialized trainings, networking (interactive culinary platform) and promoting a new tourist offer (3 new culinary heritage exhibition spaces and 4 culinary exhibitions), all relevant target groups will learn how to use the potential of gastronomic tourism.
