It’s sensory heaven for food-lovers. With Classic Journeys, culinary travel includes casual cooking instructions in local kitchens, plus visits to markets, vineyards, bakers, cheese-makers and the like. Our culinary tours of Tuscany, Amalfi and Provence all offer options for non-cooking companions, as well as walks to sites of historic and scenic interest.
Satisfy your appetite for cooking and travel
France
Italy

Experience great food from every angle.
On our culinary tours, you’re invited into local kitchens for casual cooking instructions (and, of course, a chance to savor the results). We offer activities that appeal to traveling companions who are non-cooks as well. Rather than attending one cooking class in Tuscany, an afternoon cooking class in Provence or committing to a week-long Italy cooking school, join our cooking tours for a well-rounded immersion in the local culture with easy-going walks, visits to sites of historic and scenic interest, and the full-time services of a local guide.

Activities vary to take advantage of seasonal events. On a cooking tour of Italy, we walk through lemon groves on the Amalfi Coast and see how the lemon liquor called limoncello is made. Of course, from Italy to France, our culinary tours include quality time in vineyards and farms as well as at the stove.

Amalfi, Al Buon Gusto!
This culinary tour in Italy focuses on the food traditions of the Amalfi Peninsula, and includes walks in Positano, Ravello, the Isle of Capri and Pompeii with an archaeologist friend. Along the way we sample the seafood and the fine local cheeses. We've arranged informal cooking sessions in the home of one of our guide's favorite cooks as well as some hands-on tutoring with a professional chef.

A Taste of Tuscany
The mecca for a culinary tour of Italy has to be Tuscany. Our small group visits private and hotel kitchens for tips on how to create the classics of the Tuscan menu. We've planned walks so that you'll miss none of the historic or scenic high points of the region, and along the way we'll meet with cheesemakers and bakers, and experience firsthand how Italians cook and eat at home.

Bon Appetit, Provence
Our culinary tour of the Provence region of France includes walks in thyme-scented countryside, past truffle oaks and vineyards and through small town markets for local specialties that will be put to use in an afternoon cooking class. Provence has a rich culinary history, which we explore with tips from a local chef and cookbook author, meetings with farmers and artisans, and a cooking class Provence-style in an 18th century chateau.
