Culinary Heritage Europe

Culinary Heritage started out as a cross-border project between the region South East Scania (SE) and the island of Bornholm (DK) in 1995. The aim was to joint efforts concerning marketing and development of the regional and local culinary heritage. In 1997, the project was extended to the island of Rügen (DE) and Swinoujscie (PL). Today the Culinary Heritage Network includes 20 regions across Europe: from Greece in South East to Ireland in the West, from Spain in South West to Finland in the North. Also Norway and Lithuania are members.
The common denominator for the member regions is the involvement in promoting small-scale business life in rural areas through promotion of local and regional food and culinary heritage. EU Programmes like INTERREG IIA, Ecos Overture etc. provided financial support.
