The farm holiday “Le caprette del Parco” is at Pigna, an attractive village of the Nervia Valley, rich in history and art, that is worth a visit for the precious paintings and frescoes of famous painters. Elisa, young and willing, has been taking over the agritourism cooking for about a year now; she prepares all delicious food you can taste in the comfortable dining room of the restaurant, from the typical local brown bread to jellies and jams preferably with cheese. The house specialty is just cheese made with the milk of Andrea’s little goats , Elisa’s father, that helps her in cooking too. He is a tireless and passionate “cheesemaker”, that will tell you his interesting and funny experiences. Menù varies, depending on the season and what vegetables Andrea grows in the orchard, and consists of four appetizers, two of them are cheeses of different seasoning with jelly flavoured with Rossese and delicious pepper jam, and the cake of giuncà, a fresh cheese, the latest addition of Andrea’s creations. Two first courses: the lasagne and Pigna’s potato gnocchi are worth to be tasted. Among the secound courses we mention rabbit with Nebbiolo and savoury roasts. Delicious desserts such as the bonet with goase’s milk and the typical cookies with hazelnuts and raisins. To end the meal, a coffee served in the mocha pot and homemade bitters. The tasting menù at the price of 26 euro will leave you satisfied and with the desire to return.
