“If a person wished to retire it should be in some of the little villages of this coast, where the water and earth concur to offer what each has most precious.” Thomas Jefferson

“Needless to say this is a most inspiring stretch of coastline full of the flavours of herbs and sea,”  Ursula Ferrigno.

Ligurian caponata, salad of tomatoes, black olives, anchovy and tuna with mozzarella.  Focaccia slices on the side.

Fresh ravioli with herbs and greens topped with a walnut cream sauce

Stoccafisso – classic Ligurian dried saltfish stewed with vegetables and white wine, pine nuts, olives & dried porcini

Stuffed lettuce leaves simmered in wine

Specially selected artisan cheese of the region

Hazelnut & coffee panna cotta

We have a few places [strictly limited] for anyone who wishes to assist Ursula during the morning, making bread, pasta soup and sauces associated with these lunches.

This will cost each person an additional £30.00 for this cookery tuition.
