Pesto class with chef in Manarola

Pesto course with chef in Manarola

This is a great tour if you'd like to learn to make pesto in Manarola. The place is located in the high part of the village, off the beaten path, close to the parking area. Yvonne is a chef, so besides sharing the secrets of pesto with you, she can also tell you what else to taste during your stay in the Cinque Terre.

Yvonne will tell you about the history of pesto, show you the ingredients and teach you to make pesto in a mortar, the traditional way. Once your pesto is ready, you can taste it on some delicious focaccia, hand made by the chef, together with a glass of Cinque Terre wine.
