Yesterday I gave you some tips about scoring restaurant reservations on your honeymoon, but how about planning an entirely food-centric getaway? Many galloping gourmets choose a destination city known for its dining — think Las Vegas, New York, and London — but you can also take it a step further and give your whole honeymoon a culinary flavor. Here are five honeymoon ideas for food-loving couples.
- Plan a getaway at a cooking school. Many of the world's top culinary academies offer vacations that combine cooking instruction with relaxation.
- Choose a resort with cooking classes. Just interested in a slight food focus? Some upscale resorts, such as the Four Seasons, offer one-off cooking courses that you can take during a stay.
- Traverse a food and wine region. Rather than just picking a city with great restaurants, tour a region known for its gastronomical delights, such as California's Napa Valley, New York's Hudson Valley, Tuscany, or the Australian wine country.
- Buy a culinary travel package. If you don't want to plan your own tour, there are a number of companies, such as Culinaria and Artisans of Leisure that offer package tours designed with foodies in mind and focused specifically on the wine and food of different regions.
- Get away with a private chef. If a relaxing beach or wilderness vacation is more your thing, rent a private villa or house and hire a private chef to cook for you for a week.
