Description

For some, holidays offer the perfect opportunity to get out of the kitchen and let someone else prepare your meals. But for the foodies and apprentice chefs among us, a few days away provides a prime opportunity to pick up a few cooking skills and shake the feeling that you’re an amateur in your own kitchen. After all, learning how to prepare delicious fried zucchini balls outlasts any souvenir in your scrapbook, not to mention it’s a great way to experience a new culture.

With that in mind, RealChios has rounded up few itineraries for the best cooking vacations. From rural and Genovese Kampos  to seaside and delving into crystal blue Aegean waters Lithi and Vokaria,  these epicurean hotspots feature all the key ingredients necessary to appease your taste buds, with cooking classes, tours and, of course, memorable handcrafted meals. One whiff of these dishes and you’re sure to feel inspired to book your next culinary escape.
