Why Take a Cooking Vacation for Your Honeymoon?
Many people might not think that spending part of their honeymoon in the kitchen is a good idea, but we have plenty of happy honeymooners who could tell you differently! Whether it is a cooking vacation in the heart of Tuscany’s countryside, a deluxe food and wine tour in sunny Provence, an adventurous culinary tour to Peru, or a relaxing week on a Greek Island, our culinary vacations make for a perfect foodie honeymoon. Why?
Our culinary tours are:
- Food themed
- Small group or private
- To world-famous destinations
And of course… romantic!

Food-themed: Our couples love food, and food is one thing that brings them together. Where was your first date with your spouse? Probably a restaurant. Where do you go for special occasions? Probably a restaurant. Let’s face it, food is fun, and it tastes good, and you can pair it with things like wine and margaritas. Even people who don’t like to cook generally like to eat. And even if both of our honeymooners aren’t avid cooks, it really is fun to cook together and to learn about the local culture through its cuisine.
Semi-independent: Our culinary tours are “semi-independent,” so you don’t have to sweat the details but you also don’t have someone holding your hand 24/7. You want alone time on your honeymoon, we get that. The culinary tours we recommend for our honeymooners aren’t overloaded with activities. In fact, we usually would not recommend one of our more intensive cooking vacations for a honeymoon couple unless they specifically requested it. On most of our culinary vacations the cultural excursions that are included – for example, to San Gimignano in Tuscany, or to Positano on the Amalfi Coast – feature free time for you to explore on your own. But at the same time, we’ve arranged the details, how you’re getting there, how long you should stay, how you get back – and we’ll even make suggestions on where to eat and what to see.
Small group/private: Our cooking vacations are for very small groups and are often private . Our maximum number of participants for any cooking vacation might be 4-6 people, or if the kitchen is larger might be as many as 8-12, but never more than that. We don’t do bus tours, ever. And almost any of our trips can be made private if you want a private culinary tour. So when you picture you and your spouse sitting on a piazza enjoying a plate of freshly made pasta, or overlooking a vineyard at sunset enjoying a glass of wine, you can picture just the two of you!
Customizable: Our culinary tours are customizable, so we can create the trip of your dreams. Want fewer cooking classes? We can do that. Want more winery visits? Check. Want to shorten and combine a few of our trips to visit more than one place? No problem! We often customize our trips, including adding pre- and post- nights in some of the world’s most famous cities.
Great destinations: Our destinations are sublime – some of the most visited places in the world. Why wouldn’t you want to go? Tuscany, the Greek Islands, the Amalfi Coast, Mendoza’s wine region, Portugal’s Alentejo, Provence, Paris, Barcelona – oh my! That is just the tip of the iceberg.
How do you decide which culinary tour and how do you book? The first step is to give us a call or send us an email so we can help determine which cooking vacation (or vacations) are the best options for you. Once we’ve helped you choose (and potentially customize) booking is as easy as completing our online checkout.
