The six emerging food destinations profiled in this report – Hong Kong, Dubai, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Chicago and Las Vegas – are relative newcomers to the gastronomic scene. While they are unlikely to push cities such as London, Paris and New York off their culinary perch, they offer some interesting new food-oriented activities and attractions, designed to appeal to the growing number of gastronomic tourists travelling to Europe, North America and beyond, to satisfy their desire to learn something more about life’s most basic necessity.
