intangible heritage, culinary tourism, culinary route


This paper is devoted to the cultural heritage of the Podlasie region and in particular, the intangible heritage of culinary art. Changes in the definition of “intangible heritage” and the definitions related to culinary tourism are also discussed. The area of research has been defined as the Hajnówka county. On the basis of authors research examples of traditional dishes and products and the possibility of their use in order to increase the value of economically under-invested areas are considered. In addition, the paper presents cases of similar activities undertaken in Italy and Great Britain. To conclude, a comprehensive approach of combining tangible and intangible cultural heritage is proposed.
