Learn Italian Cooking while you are on vacation

The Gourmet Vacation Package is essentially learning to cook the Italian way conducted  in an authentic Italian setting. What can be more authentic than being in Italy to learn how to cook the Italian way?  You don't just learn the techniques. The greater value  is in the process of immersion.  Students not only enjoy the rudiments of  Italian cuisine but at the same time get exposed to its much vaunted Italian culture. In other words, students get the real feel of the Italian lifestyle.What could be more exciting than that? Additionally, I would think the mentors, would be teaching in the Italian language. The package allows a choice of location for the cooking lessons.Students can take the lessons in Umbria. Located in the Central Italian region, it is one of the 20 Regions of Italy. On the west border is Tuscany, the Marche to the east and Lazio to the south. With a  land area of 8,456 km² it has about 900,000 inhabitants. The Umbrian region is mostly hilly or mountainous.
