Curtis Stone's strawberry, elderflower and brioche summer puddings

"Think of this dessert as a deconstructed version of a summer pudding, with thinly sliced strawberries macerated in elderflower liqueur and layered between slices of brioche," says Stone. "A dollop of whipped cream on top is a cooling counterpoint to the floral flavours."

GT Journeys by Abercrombie & Kent

Gourmet Traveller Journeys by Abercrombie & Kent kicks off next year with itineraries to culture-laden Morocco and India in 2016.

Pack your bags and have your passports at the ready: Gourmet Traveller is collaborating with luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) on a series of bespoke small-group tours. Join us on our first two itineraries: tours to discover the culinary, architectural and cultural jewels of Morocco and India.

In Morocco, the journey begins in the port city of Casablanca, where we'll visit one of the largest mosques in the world and discover traditional handicrafts and ingredients in the lanes of the central market. Other highlights include the magical blue city, Chefchaouen, in the Rif Mountains and ancient UNESCO World Heritage sites Volubilis, Fes and Meknes.

"This series has been designed exclusively for Gourmet Traveller and will give guests an authentic taste of Morocco and India, delivered with the personalised service we are renowned for," says A&K's regional managing director, Sujata Raman. "We have access to local communities and behind-the-curtain experiences that offer real insight into both of these exotic destinations. I look forward to sharing these unique itineraries with Gourmet Traveller readers."

Guests on the Morocco itinerary will also visit the Sahara Desert for music and dinner under the stars, taste sweets and tea in the souks off Marrakech's Djemaa el-Fna square, and be treated to an exclusive tour of the cellars at the Royal Mansour luxury hotel with head sommelier Ayoub El Fougani.

"We have a long and proud heritage as a travel authority," says Gourmet Traveller publisher Cornelia Schulze. "Our readers look to us for travel inspiration, so it makes complete sense to take the next step and tour with them. Abercrombie & Kent is the perfect partner for us to take this journey with."

In India, the A&K itinerary will take us via 16th-century palaces to the majestic lakes of Udaipur, the tropical beaches of Goa and beyond. Between savouring street food, home-cooked meals with local families and dining in some of India's finest restaurants, we'll taste authentic Mughal and Karan cuisines, as well as the exotic flavours of Old Delhi.

Other experiences on the itinerary include views of the Taj Mahal from your room at The Oberai Amarvilas in Agra, lunch in the Grand Dining Room of the Laxmi Vilas Palace in Bharatpur (still the residence of a royal family), a performance by traditional dancers and acrobats in the "pink city" of Jaipur, and a stay at Mumbai's famed Taj Mahal Palace.
