Cooking Vacations In Italy

There’s a reason our Italian cooking vacations are so popular.

A culinary tour in Italy with The International Kitchen means hands-on cooking lessons where you learn to make regional specialties and traditional Italian staples such as homemade pastas, flavorful sauces, succulent meat dishes, scrumptious seafood, and out-of-this-world desserts. Your teacher might be a professional Italian chef or a “nonna” (grandmother) who passes along generations of family recipes and a passionate dedication to Italian cuisine.
