Deborah C. Widjaja, Serli Wijaya, Regina Jokom, Monika Kristanti

Abstract

Culinary tourism offers tourists to learn new cultures through their experiences with local food of the visited destinations. The literature shows that although the concept of experience quality, namely tourist satisfaction in the context of culinary tourism, has been confirmed in many previous studies, a study that examines the linkages between those variables and destination experience, specifically the culinary experience with local Indonesian food is still rare. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of culinary experience quality on destination experience satisfaction with culinary experience satisfaction as a mediating variable. In total, 202 international tourists who were in Denpasar and Yogyakarta participated in the survey. The result showed that culinary experience quality positively and significantly influenced culinary experience satisfaction. Furthermore, culinary experience satisfaction was proven to have a positive significant effect on the overall destination experience satisfaction.
