What you'll do

Welcome to my home!
After a brief cognitive exchange and a small welcome aperitif, we will cook together typical Genoese dishes (an appetizer, pasta, a main course and a dessert) and I will tell you a bit of history and curiosity about Ligurian cuisine and its traditions
We will have lunch or dinner together on my terrace with a view of the historic center
If I prefer you prefer to be pampered, I'll do the cooking! You just have to be ready to listen to anecdotes and secrets from the dishes I cooked
Other things to note
I live in a typical house in the historic center of Genoa without a lift.
I very willingly share what I learned as a mother and from the cooking classes I attended.

Born in Genoa from a mother from Salerno and a father from Genoa but with ancestors from Emilia, I approached the kitchen thanks above all to my Genoese mother-in-law DOC great experimenter and great cook.
I am very curious and I always love to try new dishes, but I also have to feed three lovers of tradition! I have attended so many cooking classes, I have a blog and I am part of various associations that promote food. I like teaching to be able to share my passion and to continue learning

Anna has taken great care of us, selected a great choice of dishes to prepare, and explained every step in detail. We really enjoyed the hands on cooking experience, and of course the great meal at the end. It was perfect.

Lovely dinner! Anna was a kind and welcoming woman who taught us personal recipes of amazing dishes. Her patio where we had dinner was beautiful, with a view of the sea, and fresh herbs all around. Anna’s family was also very kind. The food was outstanding - we were so satisfied! Thank you again Anna.

We had a wonderful evening at the house of Anna and her family. Anna showed us how to cook various dishes from Genova, and made sure that this was fun, and that we understood the entire process. We were made to feel very welcome in the house, and afterwards ate a meal with Anna and her family. We would highly recommend Anna’s cookery class to anyone. We learnt a lot about cooking Genovese dishes, and had a very enjoyable time doing so. The family are clearly very warm-hearted and generous hosts who wanted us to feel at home. Highly recommended!
