The shopkeepers are friendly and they love to explain the origin of their products and the best way to cook them with simple and tasty recipes.

Then, your local tour guide will leave you to a special place where our Pesto Expert will unveil you the secret for a perfect Pesto. You’ll learn to prepare Pesto as tradition wants, with mortar and pestle.  After the pesto lesson you will have lunch with typical and genuine ligurian specialities, accompanied by local wine!
