Just hearing author and photographer Jean-Pierre Gabriel describe the glory of fresh pomelos in Thailand is enough to make you want to book a flight. Pomelo season is July and August; keep that in mind when trip planning. Gabriel travelled the country for three years, covering more than 25,000 km while documenting regional recipes and doing plenty of eating in homes, restaurants, and at roadside stalls and markets.
