You will need to prepare a research report on the importance of gastronomy as a tourism product, using two relevant site visits to form a case study analysis formatted into a report format.
Through your documentation of two relevant site visits and an analysis of an underpinning theory relevant to the site/s, you will demonstrate your ability to integrate theory with practice. Relevant sites may include: Farmer’s market Food truck Specialty produce store Fine wine retailer
When producing your report you should ensure it includes the following: Introduction to key gastronomy concepts Introduction/overview of the site Overview of the ‘Experience Economy’ theory
Discussion/evaluation of how this theory is relevant to the way the site has been set up and acts as a tourism product. And what effect does this have on consumers?
Photo evidence is required to indicate that you actually made two site visits including a picture of yourselves at a location and have it dated. It is worth considering how you might include relevant photo evidence in your report not just to validate your visits, but also to demonstrate the site and how it supports your discussion.
