Family and friends who came to Italy always returned home filling their suitcases with products from our region, Liguria. Each region has its own products, and sometimes it is even different from valley to valley.

When my parents visited us, they asked us if they could bring something. We made a small list and they came with a box full of things: olive oil, canestrelli and ciappe (typical wheat products, both very easy to make, but both very tasty), coffee and cheese.

Since we have so much left and the fresh products have to finish soon, we decided to host a series of swap-dinners: we are going to introduce our friends to Liguria’s products, and they will next time they will make some of their traditional dishes.

Psst! Focaccia is a soft bread made with olive oil. It’s also a typical product of our region.. wanna know how to make it? I will post the recipe soon!
