Italians know how to do food! There's no doubt about it. Just reckon the number of Italian eateries you discover in any town or city in the U.S. and you'll know the general appeal of Italian cooking.

Given the popularity of Italian cooking the world over, it's no question that one of the latest innovation in European holidays is the likelihood to go to cooking classes in Tuscany, Italy. Various tour agencies take in Tuscan cooking course on their itineraries - plus experiences for family as well - and some firms cater particularly to those who want to splurge most of their holiday time cooking within the magnificent walls of a centuries-old Tuscan villa.

For the real foodie, what could be more exciting than hands-on training by a professional Italian chef with the freshest ingredients from the orchards of Tuscany, Italy? Indeed an extraordinary experience, these cooking lessons can go on just a few hours or all day for more than a few days. Numerous persons like to spend only part of their holiday cooking, interspersing their cuisine experiences with seeing the sights, bike riding, wine tasting, museum hopping, and a host of other activities available in the Tuscan hill towns and in close Florence. Some merely want to immerse themselves in the Tuscany, Italy cooking experience, opting for a week-long intensive culinary trip that involves numerous cooking sessions with top resident chefs, event meals at local eateries, wine tastings and instruction including winery excursions, and visits to locations that produce or manufacture regional specialties.

Most of the classes start with easy dishes. Participants of all ages might start off, for example, by learning how to create time-honored pasta and then follow that lecture with something a little more complex, like a pot of soup, meat dishes, salads, custard, and moist desserts. The chef sends you home with recipes so you can imitate your experiences when you get home, wowing your friends and family with your new-found talent.

Another part of the attraction of a Tuscany, Italy cooking or cooking trip is the chance to stay in a few of the region's loveliest villas rather than in an average hotel. But don't let the age of the villas fool you! Even those 19th century structures often offer free WiFi, swimming pools, game quarters, and the other amenities of modern living, if that's what you ask for. But who wishes those things. You'll be too busy cooking!
