Whether you’re single, in a relationship, or it’s complicated, we all need good food and true love to be happy.

This valentine, treat yourself and your loved one by learning how to whip up a three-course meal from scratch.  Participants will learn how to prepare a traditional hearty meat stew, fresh tagliatelle pasta from scratch, and a decadent tiramisu.

The workshop will be followed by lunch where participants will enjoy their cooked meals with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine.

“Hands on Valentine” will take place in Tafla, a relaxing and charming bed & breakfast overlooking the mediterranean sea and the hills of Smar Jbeil.

About The Pesto Godmother

The Pesto Godmother is a journey of love and a deep-rooted passion for food. Lead by Monica Ohanian, this journey is filled with childhood memories spent in Italy surrounded by traditional cooks, family, and friends. “Whether peeling garlic cloves or washing vegetables, being a child surrounded by traditional cooks at home taught me one important lesson: cooking is nourishing not only to the body but also to the soul. I am a hard believer that the very real psychological benefits of cooking surpass its physiological ones.” Monica

I don’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t in love with food. Whether preparing it, sharing it, or eating it; food has been a life-changing inspiration.
