FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Forty-eight food destinations in eastern Kentucky are included in a new guidemap to promote culinary tourism.

The mapguide was developed by the Appalachian Regional Commission.

The Bon Appetit Appalachia tourism mapguide showcases 283 distinctive food destinations in the Appalachian region.

Sites featured include local farms, farmers' markets, farm-to-table restaurants, wineries, craft breweries, food festivals and other culinary destinations.

The effort to promote Appalachia's local-food economy come as the region continues to struggle with declines in mining, forestry and other industries.

The mapguide is available as an insert in the summer 2014 issue of Food Traveler magazine and at http://www.visitappalachia.com.

ARC's promotion of Bon Appetit Appalachia will continue for 12 to 18 months.
