  • Cookery holidays in Italy

    Cookery holidays in Italy

    A cookery holiday in Italy is an excellent way to combine your love of Italian food and wine with the opportunity to learn a new skill. Italian cookery courses allow you to learn how to create authentic Italian dishes under the careful guidance of a masterful local chef. We have developed a range of our cookery holidays which are set in a delightful, exclusive hotel where you can develop your culinary skills to the best of your ability.

    Expressions Holidays offers cookery holidays in Sicily, Tuscany and Umbria; all gastronomic regions with unique traditional cooking methods and regional dishes. We have selected a charming hotel in each region which offers hands-on cookery lessons as well as excursions to local places of interest. Cookery holidays for small groups (with a maximum of 6 participants) take place on set dates throughout the year, or we can tailor-make a cookery holiday for individuals on the dates of your choice.
