Before you scroll down — how about an Italian meal you learn to cook (and of course, eat) yourself?

Flavours Holidays approached SoloDining.com with a great story!

Known since 1998 for theme vacations and small group tours in various Italian regions including Sicily, Tuscany, Venice, Amalfi and Puglia, Flavours Holidays never charge a single supplement. Private transfers enhance guest comfort!

Highlighted among Flavours Holidays offerings is “Singles Vacations.”

Here’s an opportunity to join other singles discovering/learning about a new activity, participating in private wine, chocolate or cheese tasting and visiting major tourist sites under the care of a private guide — while staying at a private villa!

Flavours Holidays' "Italian Cooking Holidays and Cookery Courses" — appear specially designed to appeal anyone cooking for one!

Instruction takes place in the kitchen of the private villa where you'll stay. Small group members learn new techniques and skills under the guidance of local chefs.

You'll return home with recipes you can add to your cooking at home favorites.

I posed questions to Flavours Holidays. Here are their responses:

Our overseas guests from the United States make up about 50 to 60 % of our overall international travellers. They originate primarily from the East and West Coast.
Predominant age range is 40 - 60 years.
About 40% tend to be more senior.


Flavours Holidays will mail you a free brochure or you may choose to download it — your choice!

On any given night, a "Home Food" member serves a feast to a fortunate six-ten guests in his/her home.

Planning a trip to Italy? Here's a dining opportunity to consider!

The "Home Food" organization is the new baby of Egeria Di Nallo, a sociology professor from Bologna. Her network of home cooks — mainly women — recently blossomed to over 100 hostesses or "Cesarine" (empresses) — so called as a compliment to the mothers, aunts and grandmothers who passed on their versions of the culinary-gastronomic traditions of Italy.

Home Food got off to a fast (and tasty) start in 2005.

Past events have included such menus as medallions of eggplant, pizza rustica, and orange and almond tart in Naples to duck casserole, chicken in aspic, and sorbetto in Bologna.

Pricing is based on the category of the meal, and meals typically range from 25 to 60 Euros each, with 6 to 8 guests being served at each event.
