  • Abstract: AbstractFood tourism or food and tourism has emerged as a major theme for recent tourism research. This paper critically reviews and evaluates this growing subject area of tourism research thus identifies the core concepts associated with food tourism as major research themes, perspectives, and disciplinary approaches. Using the process of cognitive mapping this paper discovers that the literature on food tourism is dominated by five themes:motivation, culture, authenticity, management and marketing, anddestination orientation. The authors conceptualise food tourism research from a cultural anthropology perspective, given that much of the literature on food tourism defines cuisine as place and is used in many forms and interactions with tourists.HighlightsTerms used in food tourism research are not consistent, but there is a preference for terms with a consumer focus.A supply-demand paradigm has led the growth of food tourism research.Motivation, culture, authenticity, management, marketing and destination orientation are most common research themes.Food tourism is about cultural anthropology.Food tourism management is the management of food cultural resources.
