FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Portland, April 5, 2017: Eating Europe Tours has been named Best Food/Beverage Tour Operations (Land) by the World Food Travel Association. In the second year of its Foodtrekking Awards, the WFTA recognized Eating Europe Tours as a leader in the category of short and long-term food or beverage tours.
“Experiencing the local food culture is one of the most memorable parts of any holiday, and we’re thrilled and honored to have been selected by the WTFA for our outstanding food tours across Europe!” says Kenny Dunn, founder and Managing Director of Eating Europe Tours.
Rather than another Top 10 or best restaurants list, the FoodTrekking Awards are unique in that they fill a void of recognition of experience excellence in 13 categories within the food and beverage tourism industry. Food and beverage is the fastest-growing sector of travel, which itself is one of the world's largest and most economically significant industries.
The judging panel included experts in culinary tourism, slow food movement, and business owners. Each judge reviewed two different applicants according to established criteria in a confidential review process.
About Eating Europe Tours
The company was founded in Rome in 2011 by American native, Kenny Dunn. His informal culinary strolls with friends and family became the Taste of Testaccio Food Tour focusing on real food, real people, and real neighborhoods. In 2013 another two tours in Rome were added, so was the first London Food Tour in the city’s hip East End. Since then, Eating Europe Tours has also successfully launched in Amsterdam and Prague.
The company’s mission is to leave travelers with an unparalleled, non-touristy, food-related experience in undiscovered neighborhoods across Europe.
