About
Learn how to cook a 3-course Italian meal with Ligurian slow-food flair. With your expert cook guiding you from the start, visit a marketplace in the harbor town of La Spezia and pick out the freshest fish and vegetables — think mussels, sea bream, juicy tomatoes and bright green asparagus. Ingredients in hand, stroll through picturesque streets to a charming ‘osteria’ (small eatery) where, in a small group of no more than 10 people, you’ll receive highly personalized cooking instruction in the kitchen. Then, feast on the fruits of your labor.

What to expect
  • Begin your day at La Spezia Centrale railway station, just a few minutes ride from Cinque Terre, where you’ll join up with your instructor and small group. Stroll through the charming streets until you reach the bustling atmosphere of the local market. Follow your guide through the stalls brimming with bright produce, cheese and seafood. As you meet the vendors, learn how to select the perfect mussels, freshest fish and top-notch regional vegetables, with occasional sampling along the way. Equipped with some insider’s tips, help your guide pick and choose the ingredients for your lesson. Materials in hand, head to the town center. Step inside the kitchen of a quaint Italian restaurant, roll up your sleeves and throw on an apron to get started. Your chef will discuss the philosophy behind the slow food movement while you take a look at your recipes and ask any questions you may have. (A sample menu can be found in the Itinerary section below.) Then, under the watchful eye of your instructor, get cooking, chatting with your fellow chefs as you go. Afterward, feast on the fruits of your labor as you enjoy your 3-course lunch. Toast to your success with some complimentary wine, as well as water and soft drinks. After a relaxed day of cooking, eating and good conversation, your lesson will conclude. Leave with some printed recipes of your meal so you can take a piece of Liguria home with you.

Excellent Class and Market Visit
Jun. 2019 • Family
During a trip to Italy this summer with my son and daughter (25 & 18) I wanted to do at least one cooking class, since we all love to cook. Great hands on experience in the kitchen as well a really interesting open market tour with the chef's husband to pick up ingredients.
