ItalyCooking Vacations, Foodie Tours, Culinary Getaways

Just as there is a special art to preparing Italian dishes, there is also an art to serving and consuming this world-class cuisine. Unlike faster paced societies of the world, meal time in Italy is a time to kick back and relax. The average Italian meal is three hours long in which friends and extended family members consume 10 courses or more. When traveling through Italy on a cooking vacation, indulge yourself in the Italian lifestyle as you discover their passion for food and wine, learning both the art of preparation and the art of consumption. Take in regional techniques, ingredients, and family recipes that have been passed down over the centuries.
