The region of Liguria, in the northwest of Italy, has a vibrant coastline filled with bustling port towns and frequented by glamorous yachts, earning the area its reputation as the Italian Riviera. The towns and cities along this stretch of the coast are home to many exclusive restaurants, drawing the rich and famous from Italy and beyond. Many such establishments draw on the culinary heritage of Liguria for their inspiration, turning to classic staples of the region, such as focaccia and pesto alla genovese. The latter is a delicacy that we simply can’t get enough of, the combination of vibrant basil and earthy pine nuts is almost irresistible and this delicious Ligurian sauce has inspired our special lasagne.
Our beautiful basil pesto envelopes verdant green French beans, carefully layered between freshly rolled sheets of lasagne and wrapped in a velvety béchamel sauce, in this week’s Chef’s Special. The fresh impression this dish leaves on the palate evokes a spring evening in Liguria spent gazing out over the sapphire blue ocean, a brisk sea breeze grazing your shoulders. Indulge in our lasagne alla genovese and be transported to the moonlit riviera.
