Cooking Vacations In Abruzzo

Bask in the beauty of unspoiled, authentic Abruzzo during your Italian cooking vacation. Located due east of Rome, Abruzzo is a magical land where medieval villages perched on hilltops and nestled in valleys give way to miles of seaside; where natural wonders abound in vast protected parklands full of lush forests and majestic mountains; where cured meats, zesty sheep’s milk cheese, and homemade pastas pair with fresh seasonal produce in a regional cuisine that is both ruggedly simple and full of natural flavors. Come enjoy cooking courses that take advantage of Abruzzo’s natural landscape, where the coast provides access to wonderful fresh seafood, its mountains are home to succulent meats, and its terrain produces the well-known Montepulciano d’Abruzzo wine.

FAQ about cooking holidays in Italy

Where can I learn to cook in Italy?

Tuscany, Umbria, Campania, Sicily, Emilia-Romagna, Piedmont, Lombardy, Lazio, Puglia, and the Veneto, are only a handful of the places where you can learn to cook in Italy. Italy’s 20 regions all offer amazing opportunities to learn regional and traditional Italian cuisine. Each region has its own pastas, sauces, main dishes and desserts, and you will learn to make them on our cooking courses in Italy.

Which city has the best food in Italy?

Italians might fight to the death over the answer to this question! Many would say that the city of Bologna has the best food in Italy. It is definitely one of the culinary capitals of Italy, and Emilia Romagna, the region in which it is found, is known for its incredible wealth of gastronomic products such as prosciutto di Parma, Parmigiano-Reggiano, aceto balsamico di Modena, and pastas like tortellini, tagliatelle, and lasagne.

We think that each of Italy’s regions, however, has something truly unique and unforgettable to offer on our culinary vacations in Italy.

Which city in Italy has the best pizza?

Most Italians would agree that Naples has the best pizza in Italy. Naples, the capital of the Campania region, is also the birthplace of pizza! The main ingredients of pizza also come from this region: fresh mozzarella cheese and San Marzano tomatoes, grown in the sun-drenched volcanic soil of Mount Vesuvius.
