Pesto course in Manarola

Pesto course in Manarola

A fantastic new bar was born in Manarola, in a strategic and unforgettable location, run by two young men. That will be the location of your pesto course.

You will start the course with a basil harvest in their own vegetable garden, then Simone will show you how to make the traditional pesto sauce with the use of the mortar. He will also explain the ingredients and a bit of history.

You will enjoy making pesto surrounded by wonderful views, colours and perfumes. At the end, you will taste your own pesto on a bruschetta (toasted bread) together with a glass of Cinque Terre wine and a platter of cured meat and cheese. The best "student" will receive a special gift.
