Barbara & Stefano were wonderful hosts. We had so much fun cooking pesto and gnocchi. Absolutely worth the hike up to their house for great views, company, and food.

Barbara and Stefano were excellent teachers and hosts. They gave us feedback every step of the way and sat us down at their dining table to eat our creations with Barbara’s special touches added. Was most enjoyable!

This was an incredibly fun time and one of our favorite experiences in Italy. Barbara and her husband made us feel like family and we learned (and ate) so much!

Barbara and Stefano are the warmest, kindest and entertaining couple you’d meet! They welcomed us into their home and shared their knowledge and passion for cooking! The food and the company was exceptional! Do not miss this experience!

Barbara and Stefano were great hosts who made us feel right at home and had us laughing all night. Barbara was very knowledgeable when it came to making bruschetta, tiramisu and pasta. Everything we made and tasted was delicious!! They catered for gluten intolerance so well. The only feedback I would give is more wine! We had one glass with dinner as well as a pre-dinner aperol spritz, but it would’ve been nice to have some wine as we were cooking and waiting for our food.

Hi there, I'm Barbara!
 I was born in the Gulf of Poets, to a Sardinian mother and a Genoese father, and spent my childhood with my beloved grandparents. I like to think of myself as a citizen of the world, but I have a strong connection to my land and its traditions, as does my husband Stefano. Together, we want to share our passion for cooking and our roots with other enthusiasts and curious minds. Since I was a child, I developed a strong passion for cooking, thanks to my grandmother who taught me to experiment and taste new flavors. I have always been adventurous and have tried all the original recipes from different countries around the world, but Ligurian cuisine remains my favorite. We decided to open the doors of our house, located on the terraces of the Cinque Terre above Riomaggiore, to share our passion for cooking and local culture. For us, cooking is the best way to tell the story of our land and pass on the true Ligurian tradition to others. We are excited to share this culinary journey with guests from around the world!
