Nothing unites people like a good meal, so wherever you are in the world, picking up skills of the local cuisine is a way of taking a little piece of the place home with you. Your family and friends will thank you a lot more for a plate of authentic food than if you bring them back a crappy snowglobe. Make kimchi in Korea, pizza in Naples or Ratatouille in France, and never think of the food in the same way again.
Taking a foreign cooking class is a great way to meet new people, immerse yourself in the local culture and pick up some new tricks in the kitchen. Whether you fancy trying something completely new to your palette or want to perfect and an old favourite, learning from the best in their home country is a whole new ball game. A lot of classes include tours of the food markets so you can really experience the dish from start to finish.
If you’re going to master a four-course meal, it's the French you want to follow. Learn about the traditions of their food, and the flavours that have made them famous the world over with this masterclass.

With so many different types of cuisine, there really is an option for every budget. If you’re after a one-off class whilst you visit a new country, you can get some pretty good deals from about £30. If you’re looking for a regular, professional course, you’ll pay a lot more.
If you’re after a hidden gem, take a look at classes which are based at small farms or B&Bs. They’re often family-run and focused on giving you a really personalised experience. They’re also often mini-holidays so get to spend a lot of time learning the cuisine.
Most foreign cooking classes are designed for tourists as the locals obviously already know the food. So, you’ll be able to pick things up easily and make friends with other people in the class. If this isn’t the case, the language will be made clear before you sign up.
If you’re allergic to something, take a good look at the course itinerary of what you’ll be cooking before you book. Also, be sure to tell the course instructor before you book and reiterate it when you arrive to be safe.
Rob was a fantastic guide. The trip was very enjoyable and Robs knowledge and expertise were great. Would defo recommend
Excellent service from start to finish. I booked the National 3 Peasks challenge in 24 hours. i had regular communication from Rob and the team prioe to the event checking in on my progress, which really spurred me on as well as a helpful fitness plan i has to folow. For the challenge itself Rob and Tim really helped put the group at ease, and was very encouraging. Such a credit to business. i would not hesitate at all in recommending bookitlist to friends and family and will define use again in the future. Thank you for pushing me to finish the challenge!

From pick up to drop off the team were well organised & made the experience/challenge as enoyable & relaxing as possible. an unforgettable experience & will definitely be looking out for what other trips they have to offer.
Meander your way through the grapevines and sample the finest bouqets on offer. What better excuse is their to fill your wine rack?
The tiny town of Buñol sleeps peacefully in the countryside of eastern Spain… until thousands of tomato-wielding lunatics descend on it each year.
The Louvre isn't just Paris' most iconic museum, it's one of the most famous museums in the world. It's definitely worth setting aside some time for this beautiful art museum.
