The market dates back to the 1930s' and is a real gem of architecture, as well as a painting of colors and scents for the countless stalls offering fruit , vegetables and Genoese specialties , meat and the freshest fish.

Amazing amazing experience! This couple has such an amazing home and welcoming spirit. You could tell on their face they were so excited to host us and teach us about making pasta. Tiziana is a is also extremely humble but has won awards for her pesto! Such a fun night that my family will remember and talk about forever. Grazie mille

Cooking with Titziana was the highlight of our trip! We are so grateful for the hospitality and kindness she and her husband Roberto showed us. They provided incredible insight into the history of the area and we had so much fun learning to prepare the pasta and tiramisu. We will cherish our experience with them and are recommending Cesarine to anyone who travels abroad!

We visited Tiziana and Roberto (her husband) on the last night of our honeymoon and we couldn't think of a better way to end our trip! Tiziana was so welcoming and passionate about sharing her knowledge on Genovese cuisine! We made tiramisu, spinach and cheese ravioli, and lasagna with pesto and it was all incredible! It was so fun to make the pasta from egg and flour, roll it out, cut it, cook it, and most deliciously, eat it! As we sat down for dinner, Tiziana brought out her home made foccaccia, with pesto to dip it in, and it was heavenly! Italian hospitality is a real thing, as we had sparkling wine and aperitivo while talking with Tiziana and Roberto. Roberto was very fun to talk with, and so kind in allowing us to practice our Italian! He was a journalist so knows so much about the city of Genova and was wonderful to hear him share stories about the cities history over dinner! 20 out of 10 experience, I can’t recommend highly enough!

We spent an evening with Tiziana and Robert in their lovely home. It was a beautiful experience and the food she showed us how to make was fantastic! She showed how to make tiramisu and ravioli. We started with the tiramisu so it could set and then went on the ravioli. We made the dough from scratch and she showed us how roll it out and fill it. It was so delicious in the walnut sauce!! And after was the tiramisu which was the best we have ever had. In between the tiramisu and ravioli we were also treated to delicious appetizers and Prosecco. Everything was perfect and they were the best hosts. I recommend booking this class 100%!!! Enjoy!

Cesarina from 2022Location: Genoa    Languages: Italian and English
"The delights of Tiziana are a mix of traditional Ligurian cuisine, with Venetian and Calabrian influences . My family has origins linked to these three regions and my passion for cooking and hospitality began when I was a child. eight years I organized parties at my house and I chose the menu with my mother Maria, a Venetian who grew up in Genoa, who helped me and in the meantime I was learning. In my home, which is located in the heart of Genoa, located in a "creuza de but "one step away from the historic center of Genoa, I propose a very eclectic cuisine: from the lean cappon of the Ligurian tradition in its most sumptuous dimension, to the top treated like a divinity that is realized after long passages, to finish with pesto, prepared with the basil picked on the right day just sprouted. A cuisine that transmits love as well as taste and good humor for days and days ".
