Italian Cooking Holidays and Cookery Courses

Our cooking holidays are relaxed, fun and hands-on. They take place in the kitchen of the villa, with everyone working in a group with the chef. As we only take small groups everyone can really get involved. Our local chefs are very passionate about cooking and sharing their knowledge.

You’ll learn new techniques and skills, while creating recipes traditional to the region using fresh, seasonal ingredients. Italian food is simple but tasty and the recipes you’ll learn are ones you can bring home and create in your own kitchen with ingredients that can be found anywhere.

Where would you like to go?

Choose from a week long cooking holiday in Tuscany, Puglia, Sicily, Amalfi and Venice where you can enjoy hands-on cooking lessons. We also offer 4 day short break cooking holidays to Tuscany.
