Although travelling independently has many benefits, sometimes it’s nice to share your holiday experiences with close friends or a loved one, and create memories to reminisce about together for years to come.

Cookery holidays are no exception. Rebekah Tailor at Group Leisure has picked up on our brand new cookery holidays around Italy and France and the benefits of learning to cook in a beautiful location abroad with friends or partners:

Foodie groups can now book a range of new cookery holidays with NotInTheGuidBooks.com; from gourmet cooking in the Loire Valley and wines of south-west France, to Sicilian delicacies and the organic delights of Puglia.

With group bookings available for smaller parties, highlights include a French cooking and wine holiday in Toulouse, where participants can visit the famous Gramont wine museum, taste the local tipple during a tasting session, and learn food presentation techniques, knife skills and the art of French cooking.

Alternatively, the Gourmet Cookery holiday in the Loire Valley features a six-course dinner each evening, with the opportunity to learn how to cook gourmet French cuisine.

The Organic Cookery holiday in Puglia, Italy, demonstrates how to cook Italian dishes using locally sourced produce, and includes culinary excursions of the area.

Sicilian Cooking introduces guests to the rich and diverse culture and agriculture of Modica in Sicily, offering daily excursions and the chance to sample local delicacies with wine and chocolate tasting sessions.

Finally, the Tuscany Cooking and Wine Holiday features guided visits to local pecorino and ricotta cheese producers plus two wineries, where groups can sample a selection of fine wines under the guidance of a trained sommelier.

So if you share a passion for cooking with a friend, why not take the plunge and travel abroad to learn to cook? You will return home refreshed, relaxed and ready to put your newfound skills into good use!
