Food and wine events have gained popularity internationally. Their importance in local economic development has grown, especially in Europe, as they are seen as a source of income for local economic systems, a way for creating new job positions and effective tools for promoting and increasing typical product awareness and demand.
This book for the first time illustrates the positive and negative impacts of food and wine events from a stakeholder perspective by highlighting several critical aspects such as: (1) advantages and disadvantages of food and wine events; (2) best practice adoption for maximising benefits flowing from event creation; (3) community involvement and knowledge diffusion; (4) effectiveness in promoting local products and creating consumer awareness about products; (5) factors that promote or inhibit the success or achievements of wine and food events. Although the volume primarily focuses on events in Europe, comparisons are made to other regions in the world. Case studies are integrated throughout to illustrate the system of economic and social impacts linked to food and wine events, as well as best practices to achieve effective event management and maximize expected results.
Written by leading academics, this timely and important volume will be valuable reading for all students, researchers and academics interested in Events, Tourism, Hospitality, Gastronomy and Development Studies.
There have been countless poems written about love over the history of time. And why do we continue to read them? To have heart-melting emotions towards them? Because love is both the best and the worst, most hazardous emotion we will undoubtably feel all throughout our lives.It is both the reason that we swoon, the reason we give cheers, and at the very same time, it's the reason that we drink at all. Wine is romantic because it is one of the purest definitions of love we will ever have. It eases our troubles, yet too much can send us over.
A memoir like you've never read before and not for the faint of heart. This book recounts the sweet and sometimes heartbreaking story of one couples' attempt at raising a pig to slaughter. Showcasing the charisma and intelligence of a very personable pig, the author details with grace and humor the trials and rewards of raising and slaughtering this same pig in her own backyard. Touching on the timely issues of food safety and animal welfare, this book delicately balances the scales of one woman's desire to eat pork against her wish for healthy and humanely raised meat, while explaining how, along the way, the experience changed her idea of how we should treat the animals who end up on our plates.
