Mediterranean cuisine, with its vivid flavors and wide-ranging taste sensations, transports you to the blue skies, warm sun, and sparkling waves of one of the world’s richest culinary regions. This five-day gastronomic excursion highlights the renowned cuisines of the northern Mediterranean, including Provence, Southern Italy, and Spain, and explores many of the lesser-known but up-and-coming dishes of Greece, Turkey, and North Africa.

You’ll also get an introduction to cooking methods and equipment common to the various cuisines of the region. Along the way, you’ll discover the history, culture, and geographical influences that have shaped the unique Mediterranean landscape.
