The world's destinations are amazing but at the end of a great holiday, you come home and you could just go that Italian style pizza, authentic tiramisu or perhaps that mean green curry. Did you know you can now experience a local cooking class? Learn how to make those mouth watering dishes, so you can enjoy them at home. Here are some not to be missed!

Cook Your Way Around The World
Cook In Milano
While in Milan why not experience one of the local cooking classes to make your own pizza, pasta and dessert? There are a variety of classes to choose from and these can be pre-booked via Tripadvisor, Airbnb and Get Your Guide. I can't recommend the Cook In Milano experience enough, it was a great evening, making delicious food, amazing company and then we all sat together with wine parings chatting and eating. Hosted in a traditional family home in the heart of Milan with a professional Italian Chef. The small group of six meant each of us got ample opportunity to get hands on experience while preparing the three course meal including pizza, tagliatelle and tiramisu. The kitchen was a hive of activity from dough making, chopping up fine fresh ingredients, with some grown on the balcony! Before we knew it, it was time to sit down and enjoy the fruits of our labour. What a great evening it was. Home and proud with a certificate as well as, the essential cooking instructions. Still yet to cook them at home but it's definitely something I will be doing in the near future.

Chapatis In Nepal
While traveling in Nepal, I decided to lodge at a local home stay in the 100 year old historic town of Panauti. Located just over an hour away from the bustling city of Kathmandu. It's a world away, in the lush green countryside. The rural town has many temples and medieval terracotta architecture.
In the evening it was time to make chapatis a stable part of most meals. This Asian bread or type of roti dates back more than 6000 years.
