History buffs and food lovers will both love Open Hearth Cooking, an upcoming series of seven one-day classes offered by Historic Deerfield. Each four-hour class, held in the kitchen of the 1786 Hall Tavern, has a different theme based on 18th- and early 19th-century food preparation techniques. Hearth cooks also teach preservation technology, seasonality, diet, and the availability of local and imported foods. While the food is cooking, guests will visit a kitchen of a historic house and, after the food is prepared, will sit down to enjoy a meal together. Includes a bibliography on open hearth cookery. Class size limited to 8 participants ages 16 and up. Early registration recommended. Offered on Saturdays Feb. 4- March 18. 413-775-7217, www.historic-deerfield.org/



Set sail off the coast of Croatia this year aboard a Turkish gulet, a two-masted, hand-crafted wooden vessel operated by Peter Sommer Travels. If that name sounds familiar, it should. In the spring of 1994, British archeologist and filmmaker Peter Sommer spent four and a half months walking 2,000 miles across Turkey, retracing the route of Alexander the Great, a trip that later inspired a popular BBC/PBS television documentary. Today his company is an award-winning UK-based tour operator specializing in expert-led small group cultural tours, gulet cruises, and private trips in Croatia, Greece, Italy, and Turkey. Debuting this year are two new gulet trips in Croatia: Cruising the Dalmatian Coast from Sibenik to Zadar (Sept.16-Sept.23); and Walking and Cruising Southern Dalmatia (Sept.30-Oct 7). These join the popular Split to Dubrovnik cruises (June 3-10; Sept. 23-Sept. 30). Maximum guests per cruise: 10. Rates from $4,140. 1-855-443-3027, www.petersommer.com/gulet-cruises/croatia/
