Cooking classes and food tours around the world

Co.Co's Culinary School Playa

Playa Del Carmen Cooking School

We love to take cooking classes whenever we travel to a new place. It’s a great way to get to know a destination as food, history and culture are all tightly bound together. Plus, cooking the food after the class brings back wonderful memories of the places that we’ve been. So when we decided to Playa del Carmen, […]

Split Croatia Food Tour

The Art of Wine Split Croatia Food Tour

Our one regret in taking this food tour of Split, Croatia is that it wasn’t the first thing that we did when we arrived. Instead, we spent our time in Split clueless about the craft beer, hadn’t known about the walnut infused grappa and had no idea that we walked by the best bakery in the area over […]

Parma City of Gastronomy

Exploring Parma – A Culinary Road Trip

Anyone familiar with Italy knows that Parma is a foodie mecca. The region is well-known as the home to Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and Prosciutto di Parma (Parma ham).

Modena Italy - slow food fast cars

Modena, Italy – Fast Cars and Slow Food

When you hear the words “Modena, Italy” what immediately comes to mind depends on your passions. If what pops into your mind is a flashy red sports car, then you know this to be the birth place of the Ferrari. If, on the other hand you enjoy a good balsamic vinegar or dream of sitting […]

Bologna Italy Cooking Class

Pasta Making Class in Bologna Italy

We arrived at the cooking class in Bologna and were met with a stern look from the chef. Due to a number of circumstances including the loss of a wallet, miscommunication and a little misdirection, our little group was late. 10 minutes by our understanding, but a full 40 minutes by the school’s. Not a great start. Unfortunately […]

When we decided to take a trip to Bologna, Italy the first thing we did was seek out a food tour. It’s a great way to get an introduction to a new place by a foodie expert (so you will already know where to find all of those off the beaten track best places to […]

Palermo Street Food Tour

Palermo Street Food Tour – Sicilian StrEats

I love the name of this Palermo Street Food Tour – StrEat Palermo. As the name implies, today we were doing one of our favorite things, sampling street food. Eating street food gets you right into the center of the culture of a new place and a glimpse at the heart of the people who […]

Marrakech Cooking Class

Marrakech Moroccan Cooking Class – La Maison Arabe

When we first arrived in Marrakech, one of the first things we wanted to do was to the try a tagine dish. Tagine is the cone shaped vessel that Moroccans use to slow cook dishes with combinations of meat, vegetables, and spices or fruit along with a special blend of spices. Sounds delicious – and […]

Marrakech Food Tour

Marrakech Food Tour – A Taste of the Red City

This Marrakesh food tour took us deep inside the center of the old city and allowed us to explore the real flavors of Morocco. The setting was as compelling and mysterious as the food and I wonder how many people who haven’t been led specifically behind the doors that we explored, leave Marrakesh without really […]

Malaysia is known for its cuisine. With the blending of Asian and Indian influences (among others), you can imagine the exotic flavors that come into play. We decided to take a cooking class while in Penang, Malaysia in order to unlock the secrets that make this world-renown cuisine. And as it turned out, the setting for […]
