Practical Tips


When it comes to Italian cooking tours, there are so many options available it's best to take a deep breath to decide where your heart lies.

Tours may be based in the country or in a major city, or concentrate on the local culture with natural, fresh ingredients in season, or center around famous wines in a particular region.

Some Italian cooking tours are for serious cooks and quite intensive, while others are more relaxed and allow for related excursions to Italian wineries, farms, olive groves, or trips to major area attractions.

Most cooking tours are limited to six days working with the same chef, others may include a longer stay with several different expert chefs from which to learn different techniques firsthand. Of course, given the tremendous variety of tours available, prices can range anywhere from US$700, to several thousand dollars for a complete "cook's tour."

With the variety of Italian cooking tours available, one thing is clear. Half the fun is planning and deciding on the one just right for you.
