WE BEGIN WITH A DISCUSSION OF THE CULTURAL SIGNIFICANCE OF FOOD DURING MEDIEVAL TIMES, EXPLORE THE ORIGINS OF OUR CONCEPT OF TRAVEL FOOD, AND EXPLAIN WHY FOOD TOURISM HAS RECENTLY EMERGED AS ONE OF THE MOST RAPIDLY GROWING COMPONENTS OF TOURISM. WE DESCRIBE THE ORIGINS OF “CULINARY DIPLOMACY” AND THEN LOOK AT FOOD TOURS AND THE RISE OF THE FOOD CHANNEL AS A SOURCE OF TOURIST INFORMATION.

IT WAS INEVITABLE THAT FOOD SHOULD PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF TOURISM AND THAT “FOOD TOURISM” SHOULD COME TO THE FORE AS A SPECIALIZED FIELD. THE FACT THAT THE TERM _FOOD TOURISM_ IS RELATIVELY RECENT REFLECTS A NEW AWARENESS OF THE IMPORTANCE OF FOOD AND ITS SIGNIFICANCE IN TRAVEL.

# THE MEANING OF FOOD

THE WORD _FOOD_ HAS ALWAYS HAD A WIDE RANGE OF MEANINGS, DEPENDING ON THE CONTEXT, AND THIS INCLUDES COOKING OR EATING FOOD. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT MEANINGS, AND THE ONE THAT HAS PROBABLY COME TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH FOOD AND NUTRITION, IS _EATING_.

THE FIRST REFERENCE TO FOOD IN ENGLISH SEEMS TO BE IN AN OLD ENGLISH COMPOSITION BY ST. ÆTHELWOLD, BISHOP OF WINCHESTER (757-804). HE WRITES:

_FOR A FULL BELLY IS THE BEST THING FOR A MAN’S BODY AND THE BEST FOR EACH MAN’S OWN LIFE_.

IT MAY BE A MATTER OF DISPUTE WHETHER _BELLY_ REFERS TO THE PHYSICAL ORGAN OR WHETHER IT SIMPLY MEANS “A FULL MEAL.”

IN _THE ROMANCE OF THE ROSE_ (1362), GOWER TELLS A KNIGHT THAT HIS BELLY IS THE CAUSE OF ALL HIS WOE:

_THE BELLY’S DEEPE, THE HEARTES OF GOLD YPAYED ARE,_

_THE BRAWNES THE BRAINES HAVE LOST THE GOLD,_

_THE HEADES THE WYLDE WYNDE_

_THE BALE AND BOWES THE BOUGHS OF BRASSE YWRYNG_.

THESE LINES ARE FROM THE SAME POEM IN WHICH THE KNIGHT IS TOLD TO TAKE CARE OF HIS “DEERE BOWES AND HIS HARTE WRYGHT.” IF “DEERE” REFERS TO THE “HEART,” WE CAN CONCLUDE THAT FOOD IS “WORTH A LIFE” BECAUSE THE HEART IS AFFECTED BY FOOD. THE SAME KNIGHT APPEARS TO REFER TO FOOD AS MEDICINE FOR HIS FEVER IN A LATER STANZA, WHERE THE TEXT READS:

_IT IS NO BETTER MEDECIN OF FEBLE FEUER THEN IS A GOOD WYNE._

THE SENSE OF “MEDICINE” IS PROBABLY INTENDED HERE, AND WINE IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FOODSTUFFS FOR KEEPING PEOPLE WELL. WHEN QUEEN VICTORIA AND HER LOVER PRINCE ALBERT FIRST MET IN 1840, THEY HAD CHAMPAGNE TO CELEBRATE THEIR BETROTHAL.

IN _THE CANTERBURY TALES_ (1380), CHAUCER REFERS TO “A FULL BELLY” WHEN DESCRIBING THE GOOD FORTUNE OF FRIAR GOWER:

_THE FRIAR THAT HE [GOWER] WAS/ MADE OF GODE FLOUR A FULL BELE,/ WITH OUTEN HOND,/ HIS WERK WAS DOON/ IN AL THE HOUS HE WOLDE_.

IF THE GOOD FRIAR’S “BELE” WAS A FULL STOMACH, IT WOULD ALSO BE APPROPRIATE TO REFER TO THE BELLY AS _BELE_ , A WORD THAT HAS GIVEN US THE WORD

_BELLIED_.

THE MIDDLE ENGLISH WORD _FLESH_ , AS IN _MEAT_ OR _FLESH OF MY FLESH_ , ALSO MEANS “BODY” OR “PERSON,” SO A _BELLYFUL OF FLESH_ MEANS A “BODYFUL OF

PEOPLE.” THIS SENSE CAN BE TAKEN TO MEAN “BODY” AS IN _A BODY OF MEN_ OR _A BODY OF A STORY_.

THE WORDS _FLAVOUR_ AND _FLAVOURABLE_ PROBABLY CAME TO THEIR CURRENT SENSE BY THE SIXTEENTH CENTURY. THE VERB _FLAVOUR_ IS A LATE OLD ENGLISH WORD, FROM THE LATE SIXTEENTH OR EARLY SEVENTEENTH CENTURY. IT MAY HAVE ENTERED MIDDLE ENGLISH AT A SIMILAR TIME TO THE WORD _RELISH_ (P. 46).

_FLAVOUR_ COMES FROM THE OLD FRENCH WORD _FLAVERE_ , FROM WHICH WE GET THE VERB _FLAVER_ , OR _FLAIR_. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE ORIGINAL MEANING OF THIS VERB WAS “TO TASTE,” IN THE SENSE THAT SOMEONE WHO HAS _FLAIR_ FOR SOMETHING IS HIGHLY PERCEPTIVE. _FLAVOR_ AND _FLAVOUR_ COME FROM THE SAME SOURCE, SO THEY ARE NOT EXACTLY THE SAME WORD.

WE WILL PROBABLY NEVER KNOW HOW EARLY “FLAVOR” HAD THE SENSE OF “TASTE” AND HOW IT REACHED THE MEANING OF “TASTE OF THE WORLD.” WE CAN BE SURE THAT “FLAVOR” CAME TO DESCRIBE THE “TASTE” OF A THING OR THE “SAVOR” OF FOOD AS A RESULT OF THE POPULARITY OF THE MIDDLE FRENCH WORD _SAVOR_ , WHICH LITERALLY MEANS “TO TASTE” BUT NOW MEANS “SAVOR.” THE WORDS _FLAVOUR_ AND _FLAVORABLE_ HAVE A SIMILAR ORIGIN AND COME FROM THE SAME SOURCE.

THEY ARE BOTH DERIVED FROM THE LATIN VERB _FLARERE_ , “TO BURN,” AND IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE WORD _FLAVOR_ IN THE SENSE OF “FLAVOR” WAS INTRODUCED INTO ENGLISH AS A RESULT OF SHAKESPEARE’S “FLARE OUT OF THE ASHES” IN _KING LEAR_ (1606). THE MIDDLE ENGLISH SPELLING OF THIS LINE, WITH “RELISH” IN PLACE OF “FLAVOR,” PROBABLY SHOWS THAT THE TWO WORDS WERE NOT FULLY IDENTIFIED WITH EACH OTHER UNTIL AROUND 1600. THE SPELLING _FLAVOR_ FIRST APPEARED IN THE LATE SIXTEENTH OR EARLY SEVENTEENTH CENTURY.

_FLAVOUR_ CAME TO BE USED AS A VERB TO MEAN “TASTE” AS IN THE EXPRESSION _TO TASTE OF THE WORLD_. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT _TASTE_ , IN THE SENSE OF “ENJOYMENT” OR “TO ENJOY,” CAME TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH _FLAVOUR_ BY A SIMILAR PROCESS. AS WE HAVE SEEN, THE TWO WORDS COME FROM THE SAME SOURCE. SO THE SENSE OF “ENJOYMENT” MAY HAVE PASSED FROM _TASTE_ TO _FLAVOUR_ , IN THE SAME WAY, THAT IT PASSED FROM “TASTE” TO “FLAVOUR.”
