San Antonio has held a rare, exclusive food title for years. Why doesn’t anyone know about it?

It’s been nearly four years since San Antonio received an exceedingly rare designation as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy — one of only two such cities in the United States and one of 36 in the world.

In those four years, the City of San Antonio’s World Heritage Office has overseen efforts to capitalize on the designation, which honors a city’s cultural heritage as it relates to food.

So far, there’s not much to show: a long list of goals, a staff of three people and a minuscule budget of about $75,000.
