Anna welcomes us in Zuccarello, little medieval hamlet in province of Savona. Situated in the Ligurian hinterland, not far from the Albenga harbor, the little village winds in two rows of arcades, giving particular typical glimpses. Our Cesarine was born and grown up in Genoa, but she moved here a long time ago. In Zuccarello she also met her husband, an olive grower from Imperia. Together with him, she started a little olive and jelly production.
«I love this hamlet – she explains – and I always try to take care of it». Alessandra is a true promoter regarding traditions and recipes from her land: «I use genuine raw materials from little producers of the area, hoping to re-find and let people know savors, scents and atmospheres that belong to the culture of these lands».

What’s my secret? I choose only genuine raw materials, which comes from little producers of the area.
