Ever dream of running off to Italy to learn to cook? Italy is well known for travelers looking to spread their culinary wings. In almost every city you might visit in Italy, they have unique day and week tours such as the place we visited in Florence, Italy called Good Tastes of Tuscany. This company does a fantastic job of teaching some authentic Italian cuisine and also has a hotel right on the grounds with day tours to sightsee the area as well. You can choose a one day package or a week package that includes trips to the local markets and the big sightseeing areas that Italy is known for.
If Italy is not on your list of places to go, there are many locations to head to for a culinary adventure. Of course, everyone knows France has some amazing schools as well but, honestly, most big cities both nationally and internationally have cooking classes right in hotels or cooking schools close to your hotel or home. If you are travelling from city to city, find a class in each location. Pick a theme and have some fun. Don’t forget to keep the recipes to try back at home. A great way to catch up after the vacation is to assign everyone in the group one of the recipes to bring for a pot luck.
