Culinary tourism has grown to a more than $150 billion-a-year industry, according to the World Food Travel Association, as travelers seek to experience global flavors, learn to cook alongside famous chefs and tell their stories through social media. "We are seeing more and more people traveling to countries and making sure they have made a reservation at a restaurant there," said chef Eric Ripert. "They are not only sightseeing when they travel but are now capturing the culture of the destination through eating and dining."
