Cooking and dining with locals in Genoa

A day where you are immersed in the traditions and authentic food culture of Liguria and Italy. What’s better than dining in a ligurian family home where they will cook their original dishes? You become their guest in an Italian home and you enjoy a real Italian meal experience. You have the opportunity to taste traditional dishes made with local ingredients using recipes passed down from their grandmothers.

Imagine to enter a resident’s home and eat with local people. Imagine a dinner where the conversation smoothly flows from your travels, to the host’s daily life, to other issues. You have the chance to see the decor, the real Italian hospitality. Then, you begin to realize you have much in common with your foreign counterparts and yet much is different as well.
You’ll learn to cook some of the most famous local dishes. By the time you’ve finished cooking your table will be set and then you’ll dine together and enjoy the local cuisine and wine.

We like the fact that this experience is off the main tourism track in Liguria and further being an opportunity to dine together, it is also an opportunity to make friends.
