Head to a private Tuscan villa to join the Good Housekeeping Institute’s head tutor and hand-picked local Italian chefs on a foodie holiday

Our inaugural GH cooking holiday was so popular that we're introducing new dates for 2020. On these four-day breaks in the rolling Tuscan countryside, you'll not only have the chance to learn to cook like an Italian, with handpicked local chefs, but you'll also be in the company of the Good Housekeeping Institute's head tutor, Cher Loh. Before leading courses at the GHI Cookery School, Cher worked in some of London's most prestigious restaurants (from Nobu to One Great George Street) and alongside amazing chefs, including the late Antonio Carluccio.

Foodie escape

Staying in a villa, with a pool and garden, in a group of no more than 10 GH readers, you'll enjoy cooking classes, as well as a masterclass, dinner and Q&A session with Cher. 'I love expanding people's culinary horizons,' says Cher. 'I can't wait to join readers in Tuscany again next year.'

Fabulous Florence

You'll go on a food tour of Florence, which will include a trattoria lunch and a visit to San Lorenzo Market, and enjoy a tasting of fine Tuscan vintages at a local winery. Plus, there's no single supplement, so whether you're travelling solo, with your partner or friends, this is the ideal gourmet break to the ultimate destination for food-lovers. We expect both dates to sell out fast, so book now to secure your place.
