We're thrilled to have culinary expert Darra Goldstein, founding editor and editor-in-chief of Gastronomica: the Journal of Food and Culture, as Study Leader on our Cultures and Cuisines by Private Jet experience.

This week, take your own culinary journey with Goldstein's newest book, The Gastronomica Reader. Designed both to entertain and to provoke, The Reader offers a sumptuous sampling from the journal's pages -- including essays, poetry, interviews, memoirs, and an outstanding selection of the artwork that has made the quarterly so distinctive. In words and images, it takes us around the globe, through time, and into a dazzling array of cultures.

Cuisine is a key part of travel, and many meals evoke a sense of place. What's your favorite way to travel with your pallette? Please share!
