This book focuses on the relationship between gastronomy and urban space. It highlights the intrinsic role of eating establishments and the gastronomy industry for cities by assessing their huge impacts on urban changes and discussing some of the challenges posed by new developments.
Written by authors with a background in geography, it starts by discussing theoretical aspects of studies on gastronomy in urban space to place the subject in the broader context of urban geography. Covering both changes and challenges in gastronomy in urban space, it presents a wide range of problems, which are described and analysed using various case studies from Europe and other parts of the world.

Highlights the role of gastronomy and its relevance for geographers working on other urban issues, such as gentrification, urban renewal, urban tourism, housing policy, etc

Provides an important contribution to urban geography and tourism, as well as leisure and hospitality sciences with a chapter on theoretical aspects of the studies on gastronomy in urban space

Illustrates the issues presented using numerous examples from around the world, with a particular focus on Central and Eastern Europe
