Heritage hospitality

For a little while now, I have been using the hashtag #heritagehospitality to capture instances of food, drink, hospitality locations and illustrations which have used or highlighted a historical context to provide a level of place authenticity, or quality (in all its construed forms). I have also occasionally flagged actual historical illustrations of food or hospitality.

Parks Canada have their own twist on heritage hospitality, with an entire webpage devoted to Heritage Chocolate, via a commercial sponsorship association with the Historic Division of Mars, which has created Heritage Chocolate for use at the organisation’s historic sites.

It is interesting to note that the Parks Canada ‘red chair’ features on the Mars website, as we are encouraged to support education by eating chocolate.
