Instead of shaving cartilage, Minneapolis orthopedic surgeon Bill Lundberg is scraping rosemary-infused bread dough off the sides of a bowl, preparing to let the flesh-colored mass rise. Next, he pushes homemade pasta tinted with squid ink through a machine and hangs the strips to dry on a plastic hanger.

Lundberg is among participants in a weekend "Nova Scotia Seafood Cooking School". 

They range from Lundberg, who organized a try-something-new 18th-wedding-anniversary surprise for his wife, Lisa, to a honeymooner hoping to expand his repertoire beyond grilling steaks, to a woman and her kitchen-savvy husband on a third cooking getaway.

They're typical of vacationers lapping up an expanding menu of culinary trips worldwide — from demonstrations by resort chefs, to weekend schools mixing lessons with massage, to academies that put students to work from morning to night.

Would you go on a culinary vacation?

No. I love food, but I want it made for me. I don't care to learn to cook, and I certainly wouldn't waste vacation time trying.

hmmm... it could be nice.

Cooking classes through my school are about $975 less, though, and much longer. I think I'll just stick to those for now.
