Interesting but It Could Have Been More

We had a very fun morning making pesto and eating focaccia, a unique pasta, and rolling out cookies. We made pesto from scratch in a mortar and served it on the pasta and it was delicious. Although the chef was delightful and his restaurant was great, we did not actually make the dough for the cookies or the focaccia.

Highly-recommended cooking class

We had an incredible time at the cooking class. We cooked 4 dishes with the restaurant owner, who is also the Pasta Master Chef. We also had a guide from 'Do eat better experience', who told us more about Ligurian culture and food during the class. It was really fun to make Foccacia, learn some tips from the Chef and eat all these tasty dishes. The class was organized in the building that was originally built in the 11th century, which made the whole experience more authentic. After the class our guide walked us through the city to get some ice cream in Gelateria. We are very pleased with the level of service and how good the event was organized. We highly recommend to take this class for everyone who wants to have a fun time in Genua.
