Announcing 2013 Women Only Week Cooking Vacations in Italy, France

January 31, 2013 - (Chicago, IL)

Create life-long memories with your women friends and plan a getaway to Europe in 2013! Have some fun in the kitchen – make pizza on the Amalfi Coast, and delicious French desserts in the Loire Valley – and explore Europe with your friends. The International Kitchen has planned three unique Women Only Weeks (WOW) in Tuscany, the Amalfi Coast, and the Loire Valley. These great trips all have in common lessons with passionate chefs, exciting excursions, and are available at special rates for special women!

Women Only Week at Le Calabash Cooking School
The award-winning husband and wife Le Calabash team, Sidney and Alison, are professional chefs who are dedicated to making your European vacation the best it can be. “Picture eight women chatting and laughing as we make the most scrumptious food, then devouring the fruits of our labor in the tranquil garden of Le Calabash accompanied by delicious local wines,” says Brenda P. of Australia, a past WOW guest. “It doesn’t get much better than that!”

During the weeks of April 14-20, September 6-12 (SOLD OUT), and November 3-9, guests will not only cook with Sidney and Alison, but explore the beautiful chateaus of the Loire Valley. Normally priced at $2900 per person, this Loire Valley women only week is available for $2800 (based on double occupancy).

A Mediterranean Cooking Experience
Chef Carmen was our first chef to lead a Women Only Week, and every year she loves having groups of women back into her kitchen. When you’re not making pizza or taking part in a cooking class, you’ll see and experience the beautiful Amalfi Coast. Relais Oasi is a magical place, and with these deluxe accommodations, you and your friends won’t ever want to leave. Normally priced at $3500, experience this Women Only Week April 9 to 15, or October 6-12 at a starting price of $2450 per person (based on double occupancy).

Tuscany Olive Harvest
Head to the Tuscan countryside to cook with Claudio the week of October 27 to November 2. In addition to learning traditional Chianti Classico recipes, you’ll visit an olive oil mill, check out the local food market, and tour such beautiful cities as San Gimignano and Siena. This best-selling program typically sells for $3195, but we’re offering this Women Only Week at only $2750 (based on double occupancy).
