Homemade pesto


Since I’m not surrounded with Michelin awarded restaurants or my Italian favourite restaurant Oenosteria in Paris and I’m tired of the store-bought pesto jars (that are more or less containing potatoes, cashew nuts and other substitutes…. ) I decided that it was time for a change. With other words, I would do my very own homemade pesto. What a delight! It turned out to be the most delicious pesto I’ve ever tasted! My pesto was four times more expensive than a store-bought, but it was worth every cent, I will never buy store-bought pesto ever again!

For a jar filled with pesto I used the following ingredients: 1 pot eco basil, 1 pot eco persil, 130 g grated parmesan cheese, 2 cloves of minced garlic, 70 g pine nuts, 2 dl extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of love! Mix altogether in a food processor et voilà! Pesto love it is!

Pasta loves pesto! But so do vegetables, bruschettas…even fish and chicken…only your imagination puts the limit ;-)

FR: Moi, je préfère le pesto fait maison que celui qu’on achète dans le commerce…voici, ma recette pour faire un bon pesto! Il vous faut: 1 bouquet de basilic, 1 bouquet de persil, 130 g de parmesan râpé, 2 gousses d’ail hachées, 70 g de pignons de pin, 2 dl d’huile d’olive extra vierge et d’une pincée d’amour et c’est fait! Mélanger le tout dans un bol d’un mixeur et voilà, le pesto fait maison!
