Abstract

This paper explores the authors’ continuing journey of both observing, participating and encouraging the growth of the local food sector; family business; food entrepreneurs and place. Local food is extremely important for place making because local food offers both the taste of its place and is also the product of that place. As part of our senses taste is a key to how we define our local space whether that is a home cooked meal (Purnell, 2015), or a local food or drink product that reminds us of our adopted home, as Scaramanga (2012, p71) notes “Local food, clothing and products of cultural industries are the existing material and sources of the unique character of each place.” But what lies behind these products of place and why is that important?
