Interested in Gastronomy?

Nothing tells you quite so much about a country’s culture as its gastronomy. Whether it is street food or fine dining, at Travel Begins at 40, our team of experienced food and travel writers will give you an a la carte menu of experiences to devour. From food tours in Southeast Asia to Hokkaido’s famed seafood, wine cruises in Burgundy and the best bars in Brussels, we understand the type of gourmand delights that you crave on your travels. But gastronomy is much more than a culinary self-indulgence, it informs you so much about the people you are visiting and their culture. In Southeast Asia all food is shared and the host picks up the bill, in Greece hospitality is paramount, whereas in Japan the ritual surrounding the way the food is presented is as important as the freshness of the food itself, and in Belgium each beer has to be served in its own glass – need we say more.
