We suggest clearing everything from your mind except two questions: Who are you, and what do you want from this experience? We've picked a few destinations to make that picture in your head a reality.

Orient-Express Cooking Schools, Worldwide

If epicurean blogs and epic meals are your bread and butter, investigate the Orient-Express group's cooking schools, designed for those with a passion for food and a curiosity about how gastronomic delights come to be. Classes are available at 13 properties worldwide. At the Cipriani Cooking School, in Venice, participants tour the local produce markets and take their lessons with Michelin-starred chefs. In Mexico, the chefs at Maroma Resort and Spa teach guests how to prepare Yucatecan cuisine, and give "Tequila Lessons." In addition to mastering the art of Tuscan cuisine, guests at The Villa San Michele Cookery, in Florence, take tasting trips to the Italian countryside and hosting lessons with princesses Giorgiana Corsini and Emanuela Notarbartolo di Sciara at their private residences.
