Pesto is passion at Creattivando’s experiential workshops

By Tuesday, 08 November 2022 10:13

Creattivando’s the Funny Pesto Experience workshops are experiential events for adults and children in selected venues in the historical center of Genoa.

They are a unique way to learn the techniques and methods for making genuine Genovese pesto in a mortar.

Understand pesto and you’ll understand Genoa and Liguria 

Pesto sauce is the symbol of Genoa and to make it you need basil, pine nuts, a mortar and a pestle. “But pesto is also a passion, and we want to transmit this to our guests, - says CEO Cristina Robello.  - Discovering the traditions of pesto is a unique way to understand Genova and the Liguria region which is rich in art and history and is set between the hills and the sea.”

At the workshops what you make is what you eat 

Creattivando’s cooking workshops start with buying the fresh produce in a local market. The attention to detail and selection of ingredients are key elements, leaving nothing to chance to make sure that each time it is a truly unique and unforgettable experience. But it is also about more than pesto, as there is the chance to learn how to make many different traditional Genoese dishes from cappon magro to fresh pasta, to anchovy pies, pansoti with walnut sauce, canestrelli, trofiette and corzetti and “what you make is what you eat.”  

“We work through the net and tour operators with individuals and groups”

“We started Creattivando in 2013, firmly believing in the Genoa and Liguria brands, and over 1,000 visitors have confirmed that our model is on-target,” says operations manager Mario Clavarino.  “We work through the net and tour operators and have flexible formats.” Clients are individuals, couples, families and groups, and the pesto experience can be completed with a lunch or dinner as well as guided tours of the city and visits to historical buildings.
