Have you ever considered enjoying a cooking class when you’re on your trip? Or even having a culinary class vacation? If so, the internet makes it easy. Today we have two websites to recommend to you – one that organises cooking classes and vacations in various locations throughout the world and the other that has several fabulous food experiences throughout Britain.
The first is The International Kitchen. There you’ll find both day classes and vacations in the following countries.
- Mexico and Central and South America
Imagine a seven night vacation on the Greek island of Santorini. You’ll be taught by a professional chef and restaurateur and in addition to your cooking classes, you’ll enjoy tours, wine tastings and more. Learn to cook fresh produce in beautiful Portugal or create Chicago’s deep-dish pizza in the city itself.
See too their day classes. Learn about new ingredients and discover cooking methods that you’ve never heard about before. Enjoy the fabulous surroundings and learn more about the locale.
The site that provides culinary experiences throughout Britain is Red Letter Days. Many of these are in London so are perfect if you’re planning a trip to the capital. Here are just a few of their events.
- Cheese making in London

Many of the UK cooking courses are at the Jamie Oliver School. I love his approach to cooking. See the video below – I promise that his is the best way to make guacamole!
