Traditional Cooking class “Alla zeneize” – Genoese style
Meeting with the Guide at 10:00-10:30 at Recco train station, or on request in your hotel (price apart)
We will discover the little town of Recco, considered the gastronomic capital of Liguria. We will go to the market to buy the fresh ingredients needed for our cooking class. During our walk, we will get to know the life of the village. Our guide will tell us about the epochal changes that occurred in Liguria, the region that a long time ago was a global maritime power.
After shopping we will head towards a typical traditional Genoese house by the sea. Here, in the garden overlooking the Bay of Friars, we will learn to cook some traditional dishes, with a touch of modernity.
We will use only fresh and selected ingredients, in part cultivated organically by us in our garden, like extra vergin olive oil, potatoes, aromatic herbs, green beans and other seasonal vegetables.
