Healthy Cooking Adventures for Fit Foodies

Considering a cooking school vacation but don't want to spend all day eating? Check out these fantastic foodie destinations. You'll have gourmet-cooking adventures but thanks to ample time outside the cooking classroom you'll get a side of fitness too. Whether you want to learn the basics or master a new cuisine, one of these six healthy cooking adventures is for you.

Cooking Adventures for Fit Foodies: Italian Cooking in… Italy!
The Awaiting Table; Lecce, Italy
At this weeklong cooking school foodies learn by doing (with no more than six students per class). Your cooking adventures begin at a local market where you'll buy the day's ingredients. Silvestro Silvestori, the Awaiting Table's founder and instructor, guides you through two daily sessions (lunch and dinner) of group cooking classes. The recipes you'll learn—including orecchiette with broccoli rabe—were collected from the people of Lecce and the surrounding villages.

Get outside: Use the morning hours to explore the more than 2,000-year-old town of Lecce on foot. Speed walk (you'll torch up to 400 calories an hour) through the area, taking breaks to check out the Church of San Matteo and the Basilica di Santa Croce. Rent a bike from Lecce's public fleet and pedal past Greek and Roman ruins.

Details: A private room in the cooking school's bed-and-breakfast is included in the fee (approximately $3,060, including meals; awaitingtable.com).
