Full description

Learn how to make your very own pesto following local traditions in this pesto-making class. Join your instructor in Levanto’s historical center, where the “Laboratory of Pesto” has been preparing this famous, ancient sauce since 1976.

After tasting a glass of sparkling wine accompanied with a local extra virgin olive oil on bruschetta, taste pesto made using the modern method. Then, make pesto the traditional way with a mortar.

Wash and dry the basil leaves, pounding them together with salt, pine nuts, and garlic. Add the Parmigiano cheese and the extra virgin olive oil and enjoy your thick and fragrant pesto.

Taste your own homemade pesto together with a glass of white wine and some local products, such as olives, bruschetta with anchovies.
