Although we all love a nice, relaxing luxury vacation, sometimes, you need to spice things up—literally. Like with a hands-on, out-of-the-box culinary experience.

Active and hobby-based retreats and vacations are becoming more and more popular. And none are making as big of a ripple as the culinary retreat.

Stay for three days or three weeks; these schools and agencies have options for all levels and ages.

Whether you’re a foodie at heart, an advanced culinary master, or just a weekend warrior, these vacations could be perfect for you.

So, grab your trusty “Kiss the Cook” apron and check out this list curated for food connoisseurs and gourmands everywhere.

The Farm Cooking School

With the tidal wave that is the sustainable food movement sweeping through the U.S., more and more people are turning toward organic, locally sourced, farm-to-table produce.

The Farm Cooking School is not only conscious of these trends, but it also takes its practice one step further. The school’s system is made up of “soil and seed to plate and table, and then to compost and feed” routines that teach its students not only the most sustainable way to obtain produce and cook healthy meals but also how to continue the sustainability by reducing waste and reusing products.

Classes are typically five days, run by former Gourmet magazine editors Ian Knauer and Shelley Wiseman. The school is relatively exclusive with limited spots and only two or three retreats a year, guaranteeing personal time with instructors and heightened experience with classes. This summer, the Farm Cooking School is offering the “Foundations of Cooking” retreat in the Delaware River Valley. And in August, students can sign up for the “East Coast Foodways Experience.” Spots fill up quickly. So, if the Farm Cooking School’s practices speak to you, act now.
