Thanks to its harbour and strategic position, Desenzano del Garda has always been a meeting point that connected different areas of Italy. Its market has been immensely popular since the 16th century. In those days, cereals and grains were the town’s main exports.
Nowadays the market is still famous and lively. Every week, the promenade along the lake is lined of colourful stalls bursting with fresh produce and typical souvenirs of the area.
If you want to discover the soul of Desenzano, the market is the perfect place. Immerse yourself in the town’s daily life and dive into the local culture.
Enjoy the market tour, with the Cesarina learn how to select the best vegetables and ingredients of the season and immerse yourself in a private cooking class at the Cesarina's home. Learn the secrets of the most famous vegetarian dishes of local cuisine and taste the fruit of your labour accompanied by local wines.
During the cooking class the Cesarina will teach you some tricks of the trade of three authentic recipes (starter, pasta and dessert).
Have fun putting your cooking skills to the test. Each participant will have a workstation equipped with utensils and all the ingredients to make the dishes.
