At The International Kitchen we’re so excited by our cooking vacations we’ve decided to make it easier than ever to book a culinary trip with us. We offer cooking vacations to 16 different countries on 5 continents – wow! In Italy we offer cooking vacations to 13 different Italian regions:Cooking together in Tuscany

  • Piedmont

So how do you book a cooking vacation? The first thing is to decide what type of trip you want. Do you want to stay in a luxury villa or hotel? A small B&B or farmhouse? Do you want to cook every day or only some of the days? Do you want all transportation and excursions included, or do you relish the thought of a self-drive itinerary?
