Food and nutrition are inevitable content of everyday humane life. In their essence, they constitute a vital part of the tourism offer in tourist destinations, being a mixture of biological, socio-cultural and tourist aspect. Each tourist has a biological need, as every human being, to satisfy its need for food, but the way in which this is done depends not only from the socio-cultural features of the cuisine and hospitality of the tourist destination, but also from the specific ways in which the food is prepared and served to the tourists, which make food and nutrition a distinct tourist phenomenon. This paper deals with the importance of the three aspects of food and nutrition viewed through the lenses of tourism and with the variety of tourist understandings and practices of numerous kinds of tourism arising from relation of food and nutrition and tourism in Republic of Macedonia and worldwide.
