What to expect

Since 1976 in the historical center of Levanto, the Pesto laboratory has prepared the most ancient and well-known sauce in the world. In this laboratory, you will have the chance to learn how to make the Pesto sauce with your own hands following the tradition.

After having tasted a glass of sparkling wine accompanied with a local extra virgin olive oil on a Bruschetta, you could taste the Pesto sauce made with the modern method. You will also assist in the demonstration and explanation of the Pesto sauce making with the mortar. Then you will make your own pesto sauce with the mortar with your hands: you will have to wash and dry the basil leaves, pounding them together with salt, pine nuts and garlic, add the parmesan cheese and at the end the extra virgin olive oil. You will get a concentrated and fragrant Pesto cream, which could be used like Pasta sauce or on a slice of bruschetta.

At the end, you will enjoy your own made Pesto sauce with a glass of white wine and some typical local products, such as Taggiasche olives (small and black olives), Bruschetta with anchovies and a typical pastry with Limoncino.
