Sapori di Genova : a crunchy , soft focaccia Ligurian style 

Last Friday I had the pleasure to visit Genoa with a special guided tour planned  by Confartigianato Liguria  association, CNA Liguria , IN LIGURIA regional agency  touristic promotion & with the best Genoa’s licensed guide,  Cristina Gelvi , in occasion of the Genoa Pesto World Championship 2016 .

So nice to meet this new folk from Genoa & Mr Hugh Thompson from London & to see again   my friend Fiona MacLean from LondonUnattached !

Walking among the narrow, typical streets of the old Genoa , meeting local top quality producers was a great experience I hope I could share soon again with my clients .

First stop was by a focaccia – white pizza  – bakery : SAPORI DI GENOVA  – in English Genoa’s tastes – in which you can find a kind with no animal fat ( suitable for vegetarian & musmils) & with lard as the tradition , with pesto sauce, with soft cheese as stracchino from Recco from the nearby area – so thin & so tasty 😋😋 – and of course…. pizza !

We tried the two  kind of focaccia & I loved both ( so good  with or without fat  you can’t tell the difference ) and we had a glass of sparkling white wine called : “bianchetta”  as in the best Genoa ‘s sailors tradition : soooo ….salute everybody with Sapori di Genova!! 

bianchetta wine!
