You will have plenty of opportunity to discuss the lesson with other participants and also to ask the Chefs any questions you may have.. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal, and the day is great fun.. most participants tell us it was the highlight of their holiday!

With the original Cinque Terre Cooking School

Our Cooking Lessons begin at 10am each day, when you will be met by Jonathan and escorted to his Restaurant high up on the mountainside. You will be greeted on arrival with the warm Ligurian hospitality and be treated like one of the family.  Our Chefs will be looking forward to meeting you and give you a brief outline of what you will be Cooking during the Lesson, whilst enjoying a Cappuccino together.  

Preparation then begins and for the next 3 hours you will enjoy a hands on experience of preparing a 4 course meal with a view to have this for lunch on the terrace at 1pm.  You will be able to eat your 4 course meal prepared during the lesson in a relaxed atmosphere and stay as long as you wish to enjoy the rest of your day.

The menu for our lessons is typical Ligurian cuisine, using ingredients which the area is famous for.   If there is a particular dish which a group would prefer we can take this into consideration and try to work a menu to suit all.  Rusti is the chef at our Italian Cooking Lessons in Cinque Terre and he is known as one of the best in the region with numerous magazine reviews about this amazing restaurant and the food which they serve. 

Typical dishes prepared during a cooking lesson include fresh Pesto using fragrant Basil Leaves grown by us, Pine Nuts, Garlic, Olive Oil and Parmesan, Fresh Pizza, Pasta, Sword Fish Rolls, Sea-Food anti pasti, Vegetable Tart, Various meat dishes in Ligurian Sauces, Ravioli in Ragu, Rice dishes, Rice Torte, Tiramisu, Panna Cotto.. and much of course the views of Monterosso.
