A few weeks ago when I attended The Food Writers’ Forum at the University of Arizona, the team from Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation and Edible Baja Arizona talked about the possibility of Tucson receiving the UNESCO designation as World City of Gastronomy.
The vetting is tough and the team worked hard on the all aspects and in spite of the fact that they had tried before and failed there was no guarantee that they get this prestigious award this time around. But they did! Well-Deserved!
Tucson is the only city in the United States to receive the designation. Ane you can see by the list the city is in esteemed company.
Congratulations to the team and to Tucson!
