Would you like to soak in the streets of Paris with croissants and coffee at a cafe? Or travel to Napa Valley for the best Californian wine? Would you head to Indonesia and Bali where chicken is king? And if you’re adventurous, might we suggest a bowl of snake soup? Or would you rather stick to a food trail through Beijing’s busiest streets? And what about all the meals we have on the flights to our destinations — should you really bother with your tray tables?

This special issue seeks to explore some of the world’s most beautiful and exciting places through their cuisines. A culinary journey that ends in a lip-smacking memory. An issue to tuck in to.
