Genoa Market to Table Cooking Class

Would you like to make a full immersion in the gastronomic tradition of Genoa? Are you curious to know in which small shops and traditional markets the Genoese go to buy the ingredients that make traditional Ligurian dishes unique and special? With this unique experience we offer you the chance to become a Genoese for one day.

Accompanied by Enrica, our expert cook and a true “collector” of traditional Ligurian recipes, you will discover the real Genoa, the one off the beaten track….the one that all the Genoese really know, starting with… a coffee, ristretto of course!

You will decide together the menu to prepare, seasonal of course, and then you will go to buy the necessary ingredients at theGenoa Mercato Orientale, the biggest covered food market in town.

Together with Enrica you will choose the best vegetables, buy bread and focaccia, cheese and meat or fish (depending on the recipes agreed!).

Once you’ve finished your shopping, walk to Enrica’s house in the heart of Genoa’s historic centre and here….let’s roll up our sleeves and cook!
