    What our travellers are saying...

    Italian Cooking and Culture in Abruzzo

    Fabrizio and his family and friends make this small group trip beyond memorable. My friend said it was one of the absolute best travel experiences of her life and she had no connection to Abruzzo or Italy… Really words do not describe how happy I am to have had this experience and look forward to going again in the future!!!

    Dishing up local flavours & hands-on experiences

    Find your perfect culinary adventure

    These hands-on foodie experiences and cooking holidays drop you right in the action with fun things to learn and do on your holiday.  Professional chefs teach you to prepare 5-course meals.  Fourth generation cooks share their secret family recipes and traditional local dishes and local guides take you to the best markets to find the very best local ingredients and visit bars that only a local would know.

    Learn to knead pizza and pasta dough in Italy, explore the gin distilleries of London in a mini Cooper.  Sip regional wine ina French vineyard or incorporate more exotic flavour combinations in far flung places such as Thailand or Argentina.

    Sharpen your knife skills, refine your patisserie baking or take part in the olive harvest.  Learn the art of cheese making in Puglia and wine ageing in Bordeaux or simply simply add to your repetoire of recipes, be they vegetarian, gluten-free, shell-fish or meat-loving.

    Whether you are looking to cook or taste, you don’t fit into a mould and your holiday shouldn’t either.  Never settle for ordinary.
