“I NEVER THOUGHT I’D EAT A LEXUS GRILLE,” marveled one of the guests dining on chef Shaun Quade’s innovative creations at the exclusive Lexus ‘Escape to Amazing’ event in Western Australia. But it’s that level of imagination, attention to detail and originality that links the exquisite craftmanship of Lexus cars with the creativity of the culinary world.

As a partner of the annual Margaret River Gourmet Escape, Lexus whisked 35 guests on a luxury journey through this world-renowned wine-growing and foodie region. Amidst an intoxicating, Australiana-feel backdrop of jarrah trees, pristine coastline and rolling vineyards, Lexus hosted a four-day series of immersive epicurean experiences. It was a collective passion project of the…

1 Shinsuke Matsukawa PHOTOGRAPHER “Getting Lost in Japan’s Kitchen” Page 74 “When I go to Osaka I have to prepare myself in advance to get hungry because there is delicious food all over the city, and it is reasonably priced. The best time of year to visit is spring: you can enjoy all the mouthwatering offerings while viewing the cherry blossoms. At any time of year, my favorite restaurant is Chitose at Sennichimae shopping street. Order nikusui (beef soup with tofu) with steamed rice on the side. While shooting this story, I had a great time with Takuto, the Bar Linda owner and a musician who also performs there.” Instagram:@shin_suke. 2 Mei Anne Foo WRITER “Brew North” Page 38 “I moved to Hamilton from Singapore in February, though I was born and bred in Malaysia.

Shopping is the most popular activity for travelers from Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea. Mainland Chinese love amusement parks, while Indians prefer to head to the beach.…

editor’s note

I NEVER THOUGHT I’d be reading a travel story about black pigs, but this is our annual food issue and, around Asia, everything is on the menu. “When Pigs Fly” (page 82) is an intriguing look at this prized marbled meat as it’s served in Thailand, though its roots stretch to England and China. It’s a delicious reborn trend you should search out. Putting this issue together is like going to a restaurant where you want to order the entire menu. Around Asia, there’s never a shortage of food stories, so winnowing the topics to a manageable size is always difficult. This month, we also venture to one of the best food cities in the world, Osaka, for a lesson that is really about enjoying life (“Getting Lost in Japan’s Kitchen,”…
