What people are saying about Liguria

Constanza hosted us in her beautiful family home. The view alone was worth it. She taught us to make pesto, ravioli, and tiramisu. It was easily the best meal we had in Italy. While cooking, she taught us more about her culture and the area she grew up in. We can’t say enough great things about Constanza and this experience. Couldn’t recommend more and we wished we could have done this every night!

Fantastico! Our family really enjoyed this one hour experience. It was full of interesting facts, fun, and even some wine. We tasted a variety of pestos while then making the traditional from the region. It was made fun by our lovely instructor and we were happy to purchase many of the product without any pressure to do so. One hour well worth remembering and we recommend!

Extraordinary experience, real flavors, passion and local products! I recommend 100%

Place to discover absolutely, warm welcome and smiling staff
