Foodie Holidays


Roll up your sleeves & discover our eclectic mix of cookery holidays that are as diverse as the people who go on them. You’ll meet people of all ages and nationalities, travelling solo, as part of a couple or with friends. All that’s required is a passion for food, a love of learning and a refusal to be boxed in. Come and join them.

Destinations for These Activities

Dishing up local flavours & hands-on experiences

Find your perfect culinary adventure

These hands-on cooking holidays drop you right in the action – here, professional chefs teach you to prepare 5-course meals, fourth-generation cooks share their secret family recipes and local chefs help you select the freshest ingredients from the village market.

Go learn to properly knead pizza and pasta dough in Italy, fillet freshly-caught fish in Greece, create locally-sourced paella and tapas in Spain, sip regional wine over duck confit on a cooking holiday in France, or incorporate more exotic recipes in far-off Thailand or Mexico.

Sharpen your knife skills, refine your patisserie baking or take part in the olive harvest. Learn the art of butchery, cheese making, wine aging and more. Or simply add to your repertoire of recipes – be they vegetarian, gluten free, meat-loving or something else.

Never settle for ordinary.

Who are our cooking holiday guests?

Self-proclaimed foodies, beginners who struggle to boil an egg, lifelong chefs – everyone is welcome in the kitchens of our cooking schools.

Some love local, seasonal food, others are partial to a good glass of wine (or three).

And many of the holidays come with NO single supplements so they’re perfect for solo travellers.

Is this you? It looks like you.
