Genoa – Cooking Class with Chef Enrica
Genoa, situated on the Gulf of Genova in the Ligurian Sea, is a bustling city and the capital of Italy’s northwestern region, Liguria. With beautiful walls and fortresses, a promenade that overlooks the sea towards Portofino, and many palaces and churches – Genoa is known for both its historical treasures and its cuisine which includes the famous Pesto alla Genovese, Pansotti, and of course, focaccia. Genoa is the perfect destination to begin your Ligurian culinary expedition.
Learn to prepare traditional Genovose dishes in a hands-on cooking class with Enrica, a native Genovese, local food blogger fluent in English and Spanish, and an experienced cook. Enrica’s cooking lessons take place in the city center at her beautiful home with stunning city and sea views, and we offer 2 different options for our culinary travelers.
Genoa “Market to Table” Cooking Lesson

You will also select fresh local ingredients for your 3 hour hands-on cooking lesson in Enrica’s beautiful home. Local wine and antipasti will be served during your lesson.
