Lonely Planet Food Imprint (GalleyCat)Lonely Planet announced plans to launch the Lonely Planet Food imprint. Henceforth, the company will publish new food-related projects through this new division.

Future installments of the From the Source cookbook series will be released out of Lonely Planet Food. Some of the other forthcoming titles include Food Trails: Plan 52 Perfect Weekends in the World’s Tastiest Destinations (release in October 2016) and Lonely Planet’s Global Beer Tour (release in May 2017).

Robin Barton, the associate publisher, gave this statement in the press release: “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. 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.”
