Genovese Pesto Organic is a luscious green sauce that pays homage to the rich culinary heritage of Italy. Rooted in tradition, this organic pesto is a faithful representation of the original recipe that hails from Genoa, the capital city of Liguria, Italy. It captures the true essence of the region's flavours and is a celebration of its time-honoured ingredients and techniques. Staying true to its roots, Genovese Pesto Organic follows the classic recipe for pesto sauce, where each element is carefully selected to create a harmonious symphony of tastes. The organic basil leaves, vibrant and aromatic, are hand-picked at their peak, ensuring the most intense flavour. Crushed garlic adds a delightful pungency, while pine nuts bring their nutty crunch to the mix. Coarse salt enhances the natural flavours and perfectly seasons the sauce. In crafting this delectable sauce, only the finest organic cheeses find their way into the recipe. The robust and savoury notes of Parmigiano-Reggiano, affectionately known as Parmesan cheese, pair elegantly with the basil, infusing the pesto with a luxurious creaminess. Pecorino Sardo, a cheese derived from the milk of Sardinian sheep, lends a distinct tangy essence that complements the other ingredients beautifully. These cheeses, both organic and meticulously selected, elevate the sauce to new heights of culinary excellence.
- The heart of Genovese Pesto Organic lies in the use of premium organic extra-virgin olive oil. Carefully cold-pressed, this oil adds a velvety smoothness to the sauce, binding all the elements together and imparting the Mediterranean essence that makes pesto truly remarkable.
- In honour of the cherished Italian heritage, Genovese Pesto Organic is crafted with utmost care and respect for tradition. The organic ingredients, sourced from certified farms, reflect a commitment to sustainable and eco-friendly practices, ensuring that every jar carries the essence of the earth's goodness.
