Full description
Settle yourself into a typical Italian atmosphere and feel like a master chef for the day. Meet your friendly local chef and get ready to improve your cooking skills using the freshest ingredients, such as basil and pine nuts.   The unique sauce originating from Liguria is traditionally used for seasoning pasta. It is so delicious, however, that is even tastes good by itself on a slice of bread. The original pesto Genovese is made with basil, garlic, pine nuts, extra virgin olive oil, salt, and Parmesan.   Prepare your pesto in the most traditional way using a mortar while learning curiosities about Ligurian culinary traditions. At the end of the class, take a seat and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Don't forget to take away the recipe to surprise your friends and family back home.
