Description

Join us for another amazing class to Northern Italy!

From The Spruce blog (the spruce.com):
"Given the scarcity of arable land, it's natural that the Ligurian diet is primarily vegetarian and fish-based; Ligurians do enjoy pasta, but often add potatoes or string beans to the water, and tend to use simple sauces, of which pesto is the most famous. Ravioli are also a Ligurian creation; most of the traditional recipes are vegetarian, stuffed with wild greens (especially borragine, a herb gathered on mountain slopes) and ricotta, though they can also be meat-filled. And during the spring there are many savory pies stuffed with green vegetables, for example:

Ligurians enjoy fish in all manner of ways, from hearty fish stews such as buridda and ciupin to more elegant dishes. Meats, on the other hand, play a lesser role; cima alla genovese, stuffed breast of veal, is reserved for festive occasions, as is tocco di carne, stewed beef."
