Pesto sauce is probably one of the most famous of all the delicious dishes of the Liguria region. Fresh green Basil, authentic Pecorino and Parmigiano cheese, crunchy pine nuts... It’s impossible not to love Pesto.

This typical recipe dates back to the Middle Ages, where the aromatic herbs were used in many recipes.

In this course, you'll learn to prepare this famous sauce the traditional way: using a pestle and mortar, just like in an ancient apothecary.

Your Cesarina will also teach you how to make Trofie fresh pasta from scratch.

You will then taste the fruit of your labour together with a selection of local wines. Delicious!

Once back home, impress family and friends with your new pesto-making skills!
