What are dream vacations made of? Great food, naturally! But that's only one part of a cooking vacation with us. It's about the setting and atmosphere of a place, whether you're dreaming of relaxing by the pool or on the beach, hiking through mountains or along the coast, or discovering the amazing centuries-long history of a place. Whatever dream vacations are on your bucket list, we know we've got something for you. After more than 20 years in the business, we've added more than 100 vacations to our site (and that's not including the more than 50 one-day class options), and all, in their own ways, are dream vacations of a sort.
During some you'll stay at charming B&Bs out in the country, while others offer a luxurious getaway in thriving metropolises and beyond. No matter where you go though, know this: we pride ourselves on creating trips in which you'll be meeting and interacting with the locals. You'll get to know the food and gastronomy of the area through the cooking classes and food-related tours, but you'll get to know the people too, and that's a must when you're flying overseas and experiencing a new and exciting place.
So what have we been dreaming about lately? With our U.S. office based in Chicago, warmer weather, of course! Sun-drenched Sicily is high on our list; with all the history on the island -- the island offers some of the best-preserved ancient Greek sites in the entire Mediterranean -- you'll not only discover some amazing ruins, but some beautiful sights too.
One of our newest trips, Antinori's Noble Tuscany, is also a dream, including, as it does, a stay at the lovely Fonte de Medici resort, and tours of the famous Antinori wine cellars in Tuscany. Further south, there's always the popular and stunning Amalfi Coast, with its winding roads, views of the sea, and, of course, a trip to the island of Capri!
But we're just getting started, because we also have a number of trips in France, Spain, Turkey, and even South Asia, and Africa, among many others. Visit our Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ page to discover more of our dream vacation trips.
