What Ancestral Really Means

When NANP decided to hold our 2019 conference in my hometown of Tucson, I was overjoyed. Not because it meant no air travel. And not because I’d get a chance to invite my local allied healthcare associates to join me (and show them how cool our organization is).

It was because of Tucson’s designation as America’s only UNESCO City of Gastronomy.

When I tell people this, they’re shocked. They say, “Really? Tucson is a culinary hotbed as opposed to, say, San Francisco or New York?” That was my first reaction, too. However, the designation means much more than having amazing restaurants within its borders.

To be designated as a City of Gastronomy, the city must meet nine criteria, including:

• show how its food system, food economy, and food culture can act as a driver for finding solutions to its primary development challenges

• describe how its cultural and culinary assets played an important role in the city’s history and economic development

• identify programs, institutions, and organizations that support businesses and employment in the culinary industry

• present examples of food-related programs and projects that support vulnerable social groups and those that strengthen connections between the city, the private sector, and academia

Further digging into this “title,” I also discovered that Tucson has the longest agricultural history of any city in North America, extending back more than 4,000 years!

With a 300-year tradition of vineyards, orchards, and livestock ranching that have forged the vast array of the local heritage foods, the distinctive cuisine of Tucson has developed from a culturally layered history, a variety of heritage food ingredients, and a continuity of traditional food preparation techniques.

That’s why our conference theme, “Ancestral Path to Modern Health” is so relevant.
