About

Explore the culture of Thailand and Vietnam through the delectable lens of cuisine. Sample fried silkworms on the streets of Hanoi, search markets and shops for authentic tastes, or shadow a reporter at a Bangkok-based travel magazine as you develop a project that taps into your food passions. Delve into the art of growing, harvesting, preparing and savoring food with the guidance of a New York Times food expert.

Understanding food as a process is integral to understanding cultural identity. Harvest rice on an organic farm in Chiang Mai, shadow a street vendor in Bangkok, explore the cultures and cuisines of Hanoi and Ha Long Bay, then bring your findings to life in a two-day internship at an international travel magazine. Witness how history, context and cultural norms play a role in the way food is harvested and prepared — and gain a better understanding of the people who enjoy it.
