Italian Cooking Holidays and Courses in Italy

Our cooking holidays in Italy 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 and 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 and meet new people, making cooking trips to Italy perfect for singles. 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.
