Welcome to Irresistible Tucson
WHY I SHOULD LISTEN/WATCH?
TIME Magazine named Tucson one of the Greatest Places on Earth in 2023. An endorsement Jennifer English fully supports. According to Jennifer, ``Tucson has more ``irresistible`` products, people and places than anyplace else, in part because Tucson received this prestigious distinction from the United Nations Education Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
WHAT MAKES THE SHOW SPECIAL?
``Irresistible Tucson`` is her favorite designation of all for the UNESCO City of Gastronomy.
Irresistible is defined as ``something that one just has to have because it is too delicious or wonderful to be able to restrain oneself from eating or drinking it.`` Jennifer believes that ``the food here tells a story that dates back 4,000 years`` and includes the city's culinary heritage which is a unique tapestry of Mexican, Native American and European traditions. UNESCO's City of Gastronomy project is part of the wider Creative Cities Network. The Network was launched in 2004 and organizes member cities into seven creative fields: Crafts and Folk Art, Design, Film, Gastronomy, Literature, Media Arts, and Music.
