The course is around making traditional Focaccia that the participants can do in their own home after the experience and extravirgin olive oil tasting in our local olives mill. 9.00 am We meet in Chiavari for a morning coffee and to buy the products we need in the local market near the railway station. 10.00 am Welcome to my house in Leivi, a very quiet place surrounded with olives trees with a breathtaking sea view. The masterclass starts: I will first explain how to make a dough, which flours to choose, how to ripen the dough, at which temperature, etc. and then we will prepare our own dough and let it rise. 11.30 am In the meanwhile we'll visit together the local olives mill where Mauro, the owner, will let you taste local multi-award winning extravirgin olive oil and where if you desire you can buy it. In the olives harvest season in autumn we can see how the mill is working to get oil from the olives. 13.00 pm We bake focaccia and we eat it with a glass of white wine Vermentino outside in the garden by warm weather or in front of the fireplace in the cold season. 14.00 pm The masterclass is ending with a cup of icecream and an italian espresso.
I am a food lover and I cook since I was very young. In the last years I've been studying the art of bakery with the best artisan bread masters and I wrote a book about the traditional breads and sweet breads of my country, Lievitati di Liguria - Dolci e Salati ed. Sagep. I decided to begin offering a cooking class to my guests to teach them making the famous Focaccia! I will guide you in the preparation (and tasting!) of the most loved food in Liguria.
Extravirgin olive oil tasting - Different sorts of Focaccia (plain, with onions, with tomatoes, with olives, with sage) -…
My house is an ancient villa of the end of the 1800 with a beautiful garden that you can enjoy in the good season while eating focaccia and sipping a glas of white wine. The cultivation of the olives in Leivi is a family tradition: the local olives mill is the place where all the producers bring their olives to let them break and get extravirgin olive oil from them.
