You’ve learned to cook Italiano and studied the notes on French wine, but nothing beats regional authenticity.
The Cookbook Co. Cooks' European culinary escapes lets foodies and oenophiles experience the real meal deal.
The popular week-long trips are held in the spring and fall and include tours of historical sites, wineries, artisinal farms, and markets.
The food and wine cycling tour of Languedoc in the south of France and the food and wine tour (minus the cycling) are already booking for next spring (from $2,900). If Italy is more your flavour, an Italian escape is planned for the fall of 2010 in Cortona, where you’ll spend a week in a 17th century farmhouse villa experiencing la bella vita.
