This chapter presents a case study of food tourism by examining the production of Emmentaler cheese in the Algovian mountain region of Germany. The chapter proceeds by linking food tourism to slow food and tourism, discussing their links to sustainability and then examining the case at hand. Through utilizing in-depth interviews with key informants, it demonstrates that while food tourism contributes to all three areas of sustainability, beneficiaries tend to vary. The authors do confirm that this form of tourism contributes to two factors emphasized in the slow tourism literature: deceleration of time and attachment to place.
