    What to Expect
    We chose the most loved traditional recipes, following the suggestions of local master chefs and we will share their secrets for amazing preparations with you: our mission is to spread the culinary tradition of our beautiful city Genoa and to create experiences which are one of a kind.

    What you can expect to learn (and taste!) in our Genovese & Ligurian Traditional Cooking class:

    Trofie: handmade fresh pasta, eggless, trofie are famous for their shape: pointy at the extremities and larger in the centre. Super tasty, especially is served with their ad hoc sauce: the pesto.

    Pesto: classic basil Pesto sauce was born in Genoa. You will have the chance to taste the authentic recipe made of local fresh basil and pine nuts, we ensure it will be the most delicious you'll ever have!

    Frisceu: small fried pancake with vegetables, Best for entrees and appetizers. We will make them with Local ingredients.

    Canestrelli: handmade biscuits from Torriglia a small village on the beautiful hills behind Genova.

    Shaped as small flowers and prepared with simple ingredients, they are the perfect closure for

    Ligurian family lunches.

    Focaccia Genovese: we will also taste the "fugàssa", as it is called in the local dialect, at the welcome aperitivo, accompanied by a glass of good local wine.

    Gelato: at the end of the class, we will taste one of the best artisanal gelato in a unique location: the stunning ancient sea village of Boccadasse, Genova.
