Want a tasty excuse to travel to somewhere amazing, learn creative culinary techniques and eat delicious foods with friends and locals? Go on a cooking vacation in a place like Italy, Spain or France.

Stick to places known for superb cuisine (as well as safe streets, food and water). A cooking vacation is one of the fastest and most enjoyable ways to immerse yourself in a foreign culture. Get to know a region's people and history through its food.

It's common for guests to stay in their own villa near those of other guests. Cooking demonstrations are given to small groups, and you'll learn how to navigate outdoor markets and purchase fresh fixings. Everyone returns and practices the technique modeled earlier. Of course, there's quite a spread at the end of the day!
