Anna

After many years running my B&B around Portofino area, and cooking for my guests from all over the world, I love sharing my passion for cooking traditional Ligurian style with travellers. It has always been my favourite way to make them feel at home. Now that the B&B has closed down I 'm glad to receive them in my private kitchen, in my new house on the hills. I've been mastering the Ligurian cooking since the time of the B&B, researcing the original recipes from the past, among tips and stories old local ladies are willing to tell me. Sometimes I cook with them learning their techniques, some other times I experiment recipes by myself in my kitchen before proposing them to my guests. In my area I'm also requested as private cook by residents and tourists who need meals prepared by expert hands for their special events.
