From cookery classes to wine tasting to sampling local flavours, some of the best ways to really discover a country's identity are through its food and drink.

Whether cooking is your passion or you simply enjoy indulging in good food, the smells, tastes and experiences of food and drink on holiday tend to be among the strongest and most lasting memories of your time away. On our food and drink holidays, you might have the chance to don an apron and cook alongside a professional chef, learn local culinary secrets, enjoy a gourmet dinner with paired wines or spend your time wine tasting in some of the world’s best wine regions.

Each food and drink holiday we offer matches great food with stunning sights. Cook fresh pasta at a restaurant in a military fortress overlooking Lake Garda. Sample port in one of the traditional lodges in Oporto, perched atop the spectacular River Douro Gorge. Savour San Sebastian's renowned pintxos tapas, learn about some of the finest olives oil in Verona's Valpolicella or test your palate on locally produced fine wine in the wine-producing regions of France, Italy or Spain. Savour a glass in historic bodegas in Spanish Haro, or enjoy a tasting of La Rioja’s rich reds, fine whites and crisp rose wines.

So, if professional chefs and demonstrations, traditional techniques and local flavours, seasonal produce and regional delicacies, tickle your tastebuds and imagination, a food and drink holiday could offer the feast of new experiences you're after. Improve your kitchen skills and knowledge, awaken your taste buds with new and exotic spices and ingredients, or simply watch on as incredible chefs weave their culinary magic.
