Going On A Cooking Holiday

Feb 15, 2008
I have always had an internal craving of being a 5 star chef. The realities of the workplace made it not worth my effort. If you have ever worked in a kitchen, you know what it is to be underpaid and overworked. Each day is a never ending process and although you are trained to make some of the best food in the world, you spend most of your time cooking well done steaks for near to above minimum wage. Instead, I decided to become a good cook for my mother and a successful professional for myself. As the years went by I have regretted not having more opportunities to fully explore the culinary world. That is how I first discovered cooking holidays.

One day, I happened to be reading a chef magazine, thinking about creative recipes I could try out on my brothers and sisters. My birthday was coming up, and I was looking for new birthday occasional recipes. That is when I saw it: an ad for cooking Tours in Israel. I never heard of a cooking tour before and I immediately wrote the Israeli company to request more information. What I found out surprised me and made me so overjoyed. Cooking trips and chef vacations are the perfect getaway for cooks who are just like me.

A home chef holiday combines the many aspects of a workshop with some nice sightseeing adventures. There are many different kinds of holiday cooking, but essentially they all involve a beautiful, scenic destination known for its cuisine. Once you are there, you get to combine sightseeing with chef cooking classes from some of the world's most renowned chefs - people who specialize in the cuisine of that particular area. In between the cooking classes, you get to go the local food courts and explore the native produce, as well as explore one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. I had never been to France before and I was so happy to try it out.

Gourmet cooking tours are extremely expensive, but I had put away a lot of money for a rainy day and I was convinced that it would be worth the long trip. Although my family was disappointed to see me go, they knew that I needed a vacation for myself. They were also thrilled in some way that I was leaving. You see, they family knew that when I came back from the French gourmet cooking holidays, I would have all-new recipes to cook for them. That was worth not seeing me for a few long days and weeks!
