Head to a private Tuscan villa and join our inaugural cookery break this autumn with the Good Housekeeping Institute’s head tutor and hand-picked local Italian chefs

Tuscany has always been a great gourmet destination, but with our inaugural Good Housekeeping cooking holiday, it just got a little better. On this exclusive four-day break, not only will you have the chance to learn to cook like an Italian with hand-picked local chefs, but you will also be in the company of the Good Housekeeping Institute's head tutor, Cher Loh.

Before leading courses at the GHI Cookery School, Cher worked in some of London's most prestigious restaurants - from Nobu to One Great George Street - and alongside amazing chefs, including the late Antonio Carluccio. Cher will be passing on expert tips and tuition in memorable surroundings.

Staying in a private Tuscan villa in a group of no more than 10 fellow readers, you will enjoy hands-on cooking classes led by expert Italian chefs, as well as a masterclass, dinner and Q&A session with Cher. In addition, you will take an exclusive foodie tour of Florence, which includes lunch at a traditional trattoria, and you will experience a private tasting at a local winery. Plus, there's no single supplement to pay, so whether you're travelling solo or with your partner or friends, this is the perfect gourmet break to the ultimate destination for food lovers.
