Our lasagne and tagliatelle cooking classes take place at our farm, located in a side valley of the Scrivia Valley in the Ligurian Apennines, about 30 km from Genoa, near the Capanne di Marcarolo Park. This is a truly unique area: on the rocky ridges and in the dense woodland, species typical of Alpine flora and others characteristic of the Mediterranean landscape coexist.
We will begin the cooking lesson by making the egg pasta dough, the fresh pasta sheet for lasagne and the béchamel sauce. Next, we will prepare homemade lasagne and tagliatelle pans. You will take away the pasta sheet for lasagne and tagliatelle that we have made during the lesson.

The Food Expert: we have been growing for many years two varieties of antique roses that are typical of the Upper Scrivia Valley: the “rugosa” rose and the “muscosa” rose. The preparation of rose syrup dates back to 1600s. The rose syrup is also a Slow Food Presidium. We have recovered some varieties of antique apples and pears, both starting to prune the trees that had been abandoned and grafting new saplings.

A truly unique territory: on the rocky ridges and in the thick woods, species of the alpine flora coexist with those of the Mediterranean vegetation.
We have been growing for many years two varieties of antique roses that are typical of the Upper Scrivia Valley: the “rugosa” rose and the “muscosa” rose. Their petals are carefully harvested and processed the same day, on alternate days, because roses are in bloom for a very short time. The rose syrup is also a Slow Food Presidium.
We have recovered some varieties of antique apples and pears, both starting to prune the trees that had been abandoned and grafting new saplings. We are among the founders of the Consortium of the Quarantina Potato, that has been set up to protect one of the rare varieties of Italian potatoes.
The preparation of rose syrup dates back to 1600s. In the Scrivia Valley, the growing of roses for syrup was very common and these roses were appreciated for their healing properties. In winter, the rose syrup is taken with warm water to soothe the cough and, in summer, it is diluted with fresh water as a delicious refreshing drink.
