Posmatrajući hranu kao značajan deo turističke ponude, sa aspekta bioloških potreba turista, postavlja se pitanje, na koji način ona može biti dodatno iskorišćena, i tako doprineti razvoju turizma. Sa tim u vezi hrana pripremljena od lokalnih namirnica, po starim metodama obrade i njihovo serviranje na autentičan način mogu biti zanimljivi turistima selektivnog oblika turizma, u svetu poznatog kao turizam hrane, gastronomski turizam i gurmanski turizam. Istraživanje ima cilj da prikaže ponudu hrane u ugostiteljstvu Vojvodine i da li ona kao takva može da zadovolji interesovanja stranih turista koji putuju zbog nje. Istraživanje je sprovedeno u 147 ugostiteljskih objekata za pružanje usluga ishrane i pića na teritoriji AP Vojvodine, direktnim i indirektnim sakupljanjem pisanih ponuda, pri čemu je obuhvatilo statističku analizu od 10.923 jela.
