Pesto is a cold basil sauce, ideal with fresh handmade pasta, but also for unconventional yummy tapas! Plus, it was also Sinatra's favorite ;-) We'll learn how to prepare it following the original recipe, while sipping a glass of Cinque Terre wine and enjoying a typical local "aperitivo", each one with his/her own white marble mortar and the needed ingredients. Once the sauce done, we'll taste it on local focaccia toasts and in case you have some extra pesto left in your mortar you'll even get a food box to take it home! During the class I'll tell you everything about this basil sauce, its ingredients, but also its conservation and the ideal pastas and recipes to go with. Once back home you'll be able to impress your family and friends with a typical Italian Riviera meal ;-)
I was born and grown up in Cinque Terre area, then I left to live in Paris and when I came back, a few years ago, I re-discovered my region, its traditions and above all its food and wine. Pesto is my favorite! I can eat it every day without never getting tired of it. I learned to prepare it the traditional way during happy summer afternoon on my grandma's balcony overlooking Vernazza Main Street... sweet memory and cool knowledge. I love to share the original recipe and cool advices to fully enjoy it with foreign friends and guests and I'll be more than happy to share it with you too!
