Cookery holidays in Italy

Luxury cookery holidays and short breaks in Italy with hands-on cookery lessons for individuals and small groups

A cookery holiday in Italy is an excellent way to combine your love of Italian food and wine with the opportunity to learn a new skill. Italian cookery courses allow you to learn how to create authentic Italian dishes under the careful guidance of a masterful local chef. We have developed a range of our cookery holidays which are set in authentic, traditional hotels in a choice of regions in Italy, where you can develop your culinary skills, learn about something you have a passion for, and have an enjoyable holiday at the same time.
Expressions Holidays offers cookery holidays in Sicily, Tuscany and Umbria: all regions renowned for their gastronomy with unique, traditional cooking methods, local produce and regional dishes. We have selected a charming hotel in each region which offers hands-on cookery lessons as well as excursions to local places of interest, such a local market, a farm, olive-oil or cheese producers and artisan bread makers. Cookery holidays for small groups (with a maximum of 6 participants) take place on set dates throughout the year, or we can tailor-make a cookery holiday for individuals (with a minimum of two cookery course participants) on the dates of your choice and including as many cookery sessions as you want. Transport is included by private transfer, mini-bus for a small group, or you can choose to have a hire-car if you want more independence for visiting the region during your stay.
