What you'll do

after we met in the center of town I 'll conduce my guests to visit the old traditional shops in order to buy all the ingredients we need to prepare "Pesto " giving some informal details about the recipe and the history of this special sauce in our tradition.Then we 'll go directly to my kitchen where they will learn to make pesto following our original recipe using mortar and pestle.During our session we will also bake my special home made bread and then we are going to eat it with the pesto made by us served with a fresh home made lemonade .I'll give historical details , tips and familiar suggestions about cooking and the art of create special gifts related to the products .Since we are a family who takes seriously care of environment and recycling I'll show how is possible to combine the ordinary day life with the world that surrounds us .And since music too is a big part of our life don't be surprised if you'll be suddenly surrounded by a jam session .So if music is important for you too it will be a pleasure to combine food and rhythm

I'm a cooking devotee and a gastronomic tradition lover. I created a cultural cooking experience with which I teach tourists to do the famous genoese pesto with the mortar , giving them details about the story, the culture and of course, the technique of this special sauce. I'm already collaborating with the hostels of the city centre and with private clients, and now I wish to extend this activity and to meet tourists , that would like to get to know, like me , not only the traditional pieces of art but also, the traditional food. I've also been a guest of the Basic versus Baller tv show

What's included

Food
I'll provide all the instruments like mortar and pestel , all the ingrredients for the recipe and of course aprons .Home made…
Equipment
Children will have paper, colors , books and jigsaw for playing.
