Travellers interested in Food and Wine have endless opportunity to indulge themselves. No matter whether you are interested in sampling or creating there are heaps of countries where you can indulge your passion. Cooking fans can attend cooking classes in countries as different as Vietnam and Italy.
Some small group trips and walking and cycling tours combine elements of cooking classes and wine tasting. The Colonial Taste of Vietnam includes three restaurant based booking classes. The Dordogne Gastronomic Walk, full of extravagant Perigourdine feasts, washed down with fine Bergerac wines is perfect for the keen foodie. Abbeys & Vineyards Cycling is an easy 7 day trip sampling wines in Chablis, Coulanges and Irancy – a trip of gastronomy and good living.
A week long cooking school in Umbria or on the Amalfi Coast is a perfect way to spend part of your Italian holiday. A typical day starts with an al-fresco breakfast followed by a morning lesson to discuss the day’s menu and get creative with a sumptuous lunch. The afternoon is spent relaxing or out on excursions and is followed by an early evening lesson to prepare a four or five course dinner.
There is even a foodie trip to Antarctica!
