When I travel I love to try the local foods, and Europe has many countries with their own very unique local foods. I’m sure, like any traveller, myself included, will be able to recount each amazing local dish you have tried.

Apple Strudels in Austria
I often associate Austria with the movie ‘The Sound of Music’ with its old buildings, snow capped mountains and rolling grassy hills with a cow munching on the grass. It might be that I associate Austria with warm foods like goulash, snitzel and apple strudel because of its wintery atmosphere. So why not make traditional apple strudel in a cooking class while in Austria.
Belgian Chocolates and Waffles
There are many chocolate makers throughout Europe and none more spectacular that those in Belgian. Add in Belgian beer, local produce and waffles and you may never want to leave this small country. Before you buy out the chocolate shop, why not learn why and how Belgian chocolate is so special in a cooking class.

For many, French cuisine is gastronomy! Such gastronomy is created by locally grown and made produce that creates classic French dishes. And then there is the pastries and breads! And when in France, do as the French do, and create classic French Fare when you undertake a French cooking class. Bon Appetite!
