engaging with the world

Home

Immersethrough.com is all about the concept of cultural immersion through food.

And for me, immersion is almost always associated with travel, with crossing borders and engaging with people and with their culture wherever I am, and with making myself vulnerable.

The prism through which I most often immerse myself is food. I have spent the last twenty-five years travelling researching writing and photographing to make cookbooks, so food traditions, traditional foodways are what turn me on: flatbreads made by semi-nomadic pastoralists, the Tajik and Kirghiz, in the Pamir mountains; the spring run of Arctic char fished by the Inuit in Ungava Bay; the rice-growing traditions of the Dioula of Senegal’s Casamance region; markets everywhere and anywhere…

Please check out plans for the next immersethrough northern Thai tour will be in late January 2020, from Sunday January 26 to the morning of Saturday February 1, 2020

THE IMMERSETHROUGH FOOD TOUR TO BURMA is cancelled for 2020. 

In October 2017, I took an immersethrough group to the Republic of Georgia for 8 days of eating and drinking and culinary exploration. We had a lot of fun, and I am hoping to do another trip in October of 2019. For more details on that, please click here.

A detailed description of the Northern Thai tour (based in Chiang Mai and area) is on the Chiang Mai page.
