Culinary

A popular new trend, culinary travel excursions often include cooking classes, gourmet dining, food festivals, wine tastings plus the opportunity to savor regional dishes. Veteran foodies and kitchen novices alike get a taste of an area's specialty cuisine—everything from New England seafood to Southern low-country barbecue.

Variety is key. Some culinary formats feature short cooking demonstrations (perhaps with a celebrity chef) while others offer multi-day itineraries for the serious gourmet. One nice perk? You usually get to taste any dishes prepared, and maybe even get a lesson on suitable wine pairings. Cheers!
