Why choosing this cooking course

On March 2020 the pandemic forced me to suspend my vis-a vis cooking classes, my beloved work. I had to rethink my offer with the aim, however, to always share the Ligurian  cuisine and put to good use the expertise I have gained in years of teaching cooking classes.
I therefore started video recording the best and most authentic Ligurian recipes – the very same I used to teach to my guests at home – and created my first Liguria cooking course on demand.
A series of on-line cooking classes that you can follow at your own pace, in your kitchen, alone or with friends and family.
In this virtual cooking course, made with all my love, I teach in the very same way I do at home during my cooking classes in person, so my video cooking demonstrations are genuine, spontaneous and approachable. All instructions are very clear. You will feel like you were sitting across from me in my family kitchen. Let’s shorten distances!
I will show you the recipes step-be-step, sharing from time to time all the tips and tricks I have learned by myself repeating these dishes time after time, first with my grandma supervising me and then by myself.
I will unlock many of the mysteries of Ligurian cuisine, including the famous basil pesto sauce. Whilst cooking I will also tell you stories of the origins of the dishes and their traditional ingredients, exactly as I use to do during my classes here in Genoa. This will not only be an Italian cooking class but also a dive into the Liguria food culture.
