Mandilli de Saea invites you to the Italian holiday with cooking classes and much more in Liguria, Italy! Enjoy this part of the Ligurian Riviera while learning the secrets of its local cuisine. Enjoy a superb combination of relaxation in an enchanting nature, the temptation of simple but savory food, like handmade pasta with pesto or cheese Focaccia, and the thrill of being able to cook it yourself. Chance it, you will never regret it. Anna from Mandilli de Saea is pleased to welcome you to this part of Liguria.
The accommodation provided for this holidays is Anna's apartment located in Cogorno (Portofino area). The cooking session will be held in the kitchen of the apartment itself in the village of Cogorno. This cute apartment immerses in the greenery, located on the hills overlooking the Tigullio Gulf.
The apartment is part of a traditional, countryside block building and offers a comfortable dining room with a fully equipped kitchen, a double bedroom with king-sized bed and a cozy, private bathroom with shower; a perfect solution for a couple. The apartment also has a cozy garden furnished with table and umbrella and with a beautiful view over the gulf and a comfortable spot, just in front the main door, where to enjoy meals and relaxation outside. A parking space is also available to the guests.
A great opportunity to experience the Italian real lifestyle along with a narrow coastline between Portofino and Cinque Terre. Anna from Mandilli de Saea is pleased to welcome you to this part of Liguria, offering her own apartment as accommodation and leading you to experience this region through her cooking lesson and a guided trip to one of the typical local handcraft factories.
You will be taught the art of the local cuisine in Anna's kitchen and lead to experience this region through wine tastings, typical restaurants and guided trips.
You will be introduced to the secrets of this simple but savory cuisine, while you prepare its typical dishes yourself. Each workshop will last three hours, either in the morning or in the afternoon, depending on the menu and the requests. In any case, Mandili de Saea will provide a relaxed, learning experience while creating the same atmosphere as found in typical Italian homes, also using local products.
