    Cappon magro is an ancient traditional Ligurian dish made with fish and vegetables. If you are looking for a unique gastronomic experience during your vacation in Genoa, Cappon magro is definitely an excellent choice. Various kinds of fish are used: sea bass, hake, mussels, scampi or shrimps and vegetables: green beans, carrots, cauliflower, potatoes, beet that will be used to compose the Cappon magro. The base should be gallette soaked in vinegar, then proceed by creating a sequence of layers, with the fish and with the vegetables, all alternating with the salsa verde trying to choose a chromatic order for the vegetables so that the final effect is pleasant. You just have to try it!

    A mixed fish fry and dessert will follow.

    Andrea was a charming host. He was a great knowledgeable teacher and taught me things I will never forget. It was a pleasure to share an evening of great food and cultural exchange. Highly recommended.

    When we got there Andrea showed us the garden and picked fresh produce to cook with. The food was sooo good. I couldn’t decide what was my favorite. Everything was so perfect, we will come again when we’re back.

    we had such an amazing night with Andrea and his family. we started off by making tiramisu, ravioli, and truffel (not entirely sure how to spell this pasta) which were all phenomenal. his english was great and so we’re his instructions. his mom was there helping us as well as his dad, who were both lovely people. we cooked, laughed, and told stories until it was time to eat when more of his family joined us. they were all so wonderful as they welcomed us into their home and shared a meal with us as if we were their family. the food was also hands down the best italian food i’ve ever had. we made the main dishes and desserts and he brought out a homemade appetizer and fococcia bread. it was a night my family won’t forget and was so amazing meeting these people. i will 100% be reaching our next time i am in Genoa and highly highly recommend you go meet Andrea and his wonderful family and recipes.

    "It all started at the age of 12 with my first dish: the pennette with cream and asparagus. From here I decided to deepen this passion by obtaining the Hotel School and subsequently attending various private courses. I follow recipes handed down by my grandmothers, all strictly Genoese and/ or Ligurian. I live in Sestri Ponente, in the province of Genoa, where I can quickly reach the sea, but also the mountains. I welcome my guests in the room of my home and I like to customize and decorate the table according to the event."
