Your experience
  • Sgabei with meats and cheeses
  • Tagliatelle with pesto
  • Praline almond

I will present the preparation of sgabei, a typical dish of Lunigiana cuisine, accompanied by cold meats and cheeses such as stracchino or gorgonzola, as well as seasonal vegetables.

As a first course, I will offer you a classic of Ligurian and Italian cuisine: homemade tagliatelle with pesto, and during the summer, if you wish, you can opt for tagliatelle or gnocchi with muscoli (mussels) sauce. To conclude, for dessert, you can enjoy almond crisp, a treat traditionally eaten for St. Joseph's Day, or a delicious tart with homemade jam.

The class was great: we tried a lot of recipies, including gsabei, gnocchi, tiramisu. I also asked a lot of questions about other dishes that I have cooked and got great advice. I was glad that I took a taxi from the train station: it saved a lot of stress when reaching the class. I really appreciated the chance to talk over the food that we made, and it was very nice to see the less touristy parts of the region.

This is a MUST book when in town. Daniella welcomed us into her home as if it was our own. We felt comfortable and had such a great time learning not only how to cook classic Italian dishes abut about the culture as a whole. The host is so sweet and knowledgable. The food was amazing and her instruction was great as well. We can't say thank you enough Daniella. Saluti!

Cesarina from 2018Location: La Spezia    Languages: Italian and English
The city of La Spezia is located practically on the border between Liguria and Tuscany. It is the ideal starting point to visit the splendid Cinque Terre and other characteristic villages in the area, such as Lerici and Porto Venere. With the sea in front of the city and the mountains behind, it is fascinating to admire it from above from San Giorgio castle, and experience its unique flavor through its culinary offerings, which reflect a combination of land and sea, evolution and experimentation. Seated around Daniela's table, you’ll experience a procession of traditional recipes. Our Cesarina offers the classic cuisine of La Spezia, the result of the fusion of different traditions from the neighboring regions. Daniela's prepares her dishes using simple ingredients. However, once combined, they give life to both strong and delicate flavors at the same time, recipes like 'sgabei' – raised bread dough that is cut into strips, fried, stuffed with cheeses or locally cured cold cuts, 'muscoli' (mussels) in a variety of versions and, of course, an absolute must, 'pesto' (sauce made from basil).
