destination: Northern California

According to Gourmet Magazine and the International Culinary Travel Association, California is the top destination for travelers whose vacation plans include food festivals, wine tours, and other culinary pursuits. 

Culinary activities include but are not limited to cooking classes, dining at some of the most highly regarded restaurants in America, visiting farmers markets, gourmet food shopping and attending food festivals. Wine activities included touring a winery, driving a wine trail, tasting locally made wines and attending wine festivals.

My vote for making the most out of a culinary trip to Northern California lies at the
CIA (Culinary Institute of America). Here you can tour their teaching kitchens which are among the finest professional education facilities in the world offering spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, minutes from world-class vineyards and some of the best dining experiences you may ever have. Plan in advance and make reservations at one of their world renowned restaurants and don't miss out on an opportunity to take a culinary class from the finest professionals in the industry.
