Travel guidebook publisher Lonely Planet has announced the launch of imprint Lonely Planet Food, which will house all of the company's food-related books.
The imprint, which rolls out this fall, follows the creation of the cookbook series From the Source in 2015, and will recognize the "growing" collection, according to the publisher.
Food Trails: Plan 52 Perfect Weekends in the World's Tastiest Destinations, out in November, is a "gastronomic tour" of memorable food experiences worth planning a trip around, from cooking classes to fine dining. The new imprint will also release two more From The Source titles (on Spain and Japan) in September, and in May 2016, Lonely Planet's Global Beer Tour.
“We will be publishing a wide range of titles, including recipe books that feature food in its place of origin, and travel companions to food and drink trails around the world,” said Lonely Planet associate publisher Robin Barton. “We show chefs cooking, customers eating and ingredients being bought in markets, giving readers a true sense of place. A huge part of the food experience is the surroundings, atmosphere and people—our aim is to bring the complete package to people at home who are keen to experience world food at its most authentic.”
