Has anyone been on a good trip that includes some physical activity (hiking, yoga, etc.) and cooking? I'm curious about doing a trip to Italy maybe but would like to see what the options are in the US as well.

Peggy- don't have any information about hiking or yoga but here is a great list of cooking schools in Italy. This is also a great website for just about anyting Italian.
GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN!!

It was either Gourmet, Bon Appetit or Food & Wine a couple of months ago...can find it tomorrow but there was an article on cooking school holidays with schools in the US.

Well, I just got back from 2.5 weeks in Italy, where we did LOTS of walking and some hiking, and had the occasion to cook for ourselves at the villa we stayed in. But it wasn't a planned "cooking school" trip at all.
But, I must say that the Italians really really know how to cook, and if there are travel packages that allow you to go there and learn how, I'd recommend them!

Andy Hampsten has packages where you bike ride through Italy during the day, and learn to cook at night. It sounds awesome!! I don't have the URL handy, but do a Google on Andy Hampsten and you should find it easily (Andy's the old bike rider who rode the Tour de France with Greg Lemond)
