This was a very fun way to spend the morning! The information we were given about the history, the ingredients and the process of making pesto was interesting and well delivered. The samples were very generous and the whole experience was value for money.

15eur now (previous reviewers paid 10), and totally worth it. Monia is a hoot and the class is a lot of fun. You will leave stuffed, buzzed, and with new friends! Kids are welcome (and our 7 year old was free).
