Cook under the Tuscan sun or in a Hawaiian paradise this year

Thanksgiving is around the corner which means it's officially Time to Celebrate. All month long we're bringing you recipes, tips, tricks and stories that are equal parts memorable and delicious.

Let these 15 Airbnbs get you in the cooking spirit.
