For a simple and genuine cuisine

The cuisine of Liguria and the Finale area is an image of its people; its mountain-dwellers and its sailors. Although it has been embellished and refined over time, its base ingredients are therefore simple foods, which are cheap and widely available – the ancient glories of the region. In this sense, the cuisine also reflects the characteristics of the landscape, of the natural union of the sea and the mountains that characterise the Ligurian territory.
In addition to the typical and characteristic products throughout the region such as the product with the DOP basil pesto, focaccia, farinata, Pasqualina cake, green cakes, olive oil and all its derivatives, the various recipes fish, which stand only so-called Fugassin Finalesi products, namely chips muffins made with potatoes, and chifferi, sweets made with crescent-shaped almond, also produced in the chocolate variant.
The following recipes were kindly provided by Migliorini Institute of Finale Ligure.
