Dr. Catriona Murphy, Head of the Department of Food and Tourism at LIT says,

“We are delighted to invite people to book their reservations and experience TASTE at LIT.

“TASTE has the obvious connection to food in terms of the physical consumption of food using our senses of smell, touch, sight and sound to influence and evaluate our taste. However, TASTE has intangible connotations too which are particularly relevant in the tourism industry.

“The tourism industry is one of the most important contributors to the Irish economy followed closely by food and both food and tourism play a pivotal role in the Irish culture and identity. While people, place and space are the main reasons people visit Ireland, food and perhaps more importantly the meal experience is central to the tourism experience.

“In essence TASTE is more a concept than a tangible reality which is influenced by the actual food but also food influences and often defines place identity, globalization, localization, sensory evaluation, technologies, legislation, economies and societies.
