In Levanto’s historical center, the “laboratory of the pesto” prepares the most ancient and well-known sauce in the world since 1976. In this laboratory you will have the chance to learn how to make the pesto sauce with your own hands following the tradition. After tasting a glass of sparkling wine accompanied with a local extra virgin olive oil on a bruschetta, you will taste the pesto sauce made with the modern method while assisting the demonstration and explanation of the pesto sauce made with the mortar.
Here comes the moment to make your own pesto sauce with the mortar: wash and dry the basil leaves, pounding them together with salt, pine nuts and garlic, add the Parmigiano cheese and the extra virgin olive oil. You will get a concentrated and perfumed pesto cream, which can be used on some pasta or on a bruschetta.
At the end you will enjoy your own made pesto sauce together with a glass of white wine and some typical local products such as olives “taggiasche” (small and black olives), bruschetta with anchovies and a typical pastry with limoncino.
