Going On A Cooking Holiday

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.

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

The gourmet cooking trips were expensive to say the least, but I had put away good money for a rainy day and I was convinced that it would be worth the trip overall. Although my family was disappointed to see me go away on this long trip, they knew that I needed a vacation to just be me. They were also thrilled in some way that I was leaving. You see, they knew that when I came back from the gourmet cooking holidays, I would have all-new recipes to cook for them. That was worth not seeing me for a few long weeks!
