Make your way to a central location in Genoa, where you’ll meet a guide at a local food market—start by learning the basic seasonal ingredients of Genoese cuisine.

The guide will share this history and background of Pesto alla Genovese, then begin the cooking lesson. See how local chefs crush garlic, basil, pine nuts to make the classic version of basil pesto, then explore modern versions of the sauce, such as Pesto all Siciliana, which blends in fresh ricotta for a creamy, smooth sauce.

After the cooking demonstration, try the freshly-prepared pesto alongside a glass of wine.
