You may have noticed that my raison d'être is culinary tourism (obviously).
I have had my own culinary success here in Sudbury (my home City) and I know many others who are rockstars in our scene and continue to shake things up here...
BUT I also know of many other talented food-loving people who are scared to open their dream bar or restaurant and are hiding in other industries... just waiting...
It isn't a problem unique to this City.
The foodservice industry is difficult enough trying to please locals and the occasional tourist, but now that culinary tourism is the driving force behind many travellers' booking decisions, it is almost essential for every community to have a plan in place to promote, support and nurture their own "flavour".
Further to my previous post Discovering Sudbury's Culinary Identity I am excited to be working with a group of passionate people who all want to put Sudbury as a "top of mind" destination for culinary tourists worldwide.
