I am an experienced professional specializing in food and wine tourism, and I promote the Italian Riviera and the surrounding areas, and all that is remarkable and excellent in our territory and in Mediterranean cooking. Ligurian culture and food are probably two of Italy’s best kept secrets: unusual, attractive, and mysterious. Savouring authentic local foods in historically relevant settings under the guidance of a motivated and knowledgeable guide, food lovers will develop a taste of place and an understanding of the culture. You have to taste a culture to understand it.
