Amazing!! We did a 3 hour cooking lesson and it was fabulous! We went with other couple and they were also very nice. Barbara is an amazing cooker and person and was allays checking on us! She gave us an extra pasta that she made the day before and it was unreal!! All of the dishes were super tasty and made with a lot of love. Her husband(Stephano) didn’t spoke English very well but he was very funny and also a great person! My daughter loved cooking with them and even learned a little bit italiano🤌I highly recommend this class and if we were back in Italy in the next months we would go back without thinking twice!

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!
