PIETRA GOURMET: GOURMET ITINERARY 1
Discover the gourmet stops around Pietra old centre
CULINARY ITINERARIES AROUND THE TOWN CENTRE, TASTINGS WITH LOCAL PRODUCERS, AND WORKSHOPS TO MAKE TRADITIONAL PESTO IN A MORTAR
1 - Our tour begins at 3. "Da Virginia", a Pietresi institution for over 150 years! Here we will try two versions of the traditional Ligurian speciality of farinata (chickpea flatbread)
2 - Our next stop will be wine tasting at Giovanni Battista Levo's wine shop, a point of reference in the alleys of Pietra since 1954. Locally produced wine awaits you here.
3 - Our tour then takes us to Pastificio Ligure Pietrese to try authentic Ligurian pesto which is made according to traditional standards and uses garlic from Vessalico, a Slow Food Presidia. The pesto will be served with fresh, homemade "trofie" pasta.
4 - We continue to "Cà du Din" next, in the heart of Piazza Vecchia, for a sweet and savoury stop. Here we will try Extra Virgin Olive Oil made with "Taggiasche" olives, honey from the local area and a selection of traditional, dry pastries.
5 - When we think of lavander, we imagine vibrant, colourful, intensly perfumed fields... To conclude our tour we will head to Peccati di Gola, who have been able to capture the essence of lavander from Pietra Ligure in their delicious ice-cream.
