Pesto course in Manarola

In a strategic and unforgettable location was born this new bar with breath taking view, run by two young guys. The pesto course will take life here, starting from the basil harvest in their own vegetable garden and by picking the ingredients. Simone will show you how to make the traditional pesto sauce, with the use of the mortar, explaining its ingredients and history.

You will enjoy making pesto surrounded by wonderful places, colors and perfumes. At the end you will taste your own job on a bruschetta (toasted bread) together with a glass of Cinque Terre wine and a platter of cured meats and cheeses. The best “student” will be rewarded with a special gift…surprise!!
