Over 150 listings for cooking vacation programs around the world (and a handful right here in the United States, as well). Cooking has become recreation for more and more home chefs, but world cuisine is best learned and savored on its home turf. Readers will learn to cook like a native or study under a celebrity chef, all while staying in some of the most beautiful spots in the world - a restored palazzo in Venice, a chateau in Provence, a fourteenth century convent in Amalfi. This book provides cost, contact and accommodation information, a full description and feedback from former students for each cooking course, as well as ideas to entertain family and traveling companions while the cook studies. This book covers France, Italy, Asia, the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Austria, Brazil, England, Greece, Ireland, Morocco, Spain and Turkey. Includes recipes from program described in the book.
