Accompanying 150 stunning travel and food pictures in color, the lively text describes a course of study-from a long weekend to a two-week program-and provides a "taster" recipe from each school. Tips are provided on other programs readers might like to try if they find the one featured appealing. There is also information about schedules, travel arrangements, and accommodations that range from charming bed-and-breakfast places near the schools to luxurious all-inclusive packages staying in former convents, rustic farmhouses, and plush international hotels.

So if your fantasy is to fly to some intriguing destination and learn at the side of an award-winning chef, be instructed on authentic cooking methods of a favorite cuisine, or understand how local people really shop, cook, eat, and drink, this guide offers plans to realize these dreams. Whatever cooking adventure you have in mind, the vacations in this guide will provide thrilling culinary experiences and bring style to your cooking, discernment to your shopping, and enjoyment of meals for many years to come.
