Ligurian pesto is just that bit more special than your average pesto. For a start, the basil grows much better there, than it does on my windowsill! It is usually harvested when the plant has just a couple of leaves; when it has a more delicate, sweeter flavour. The region's olive oil is a perfect match for the basil, just enough to bring out the fresh basil flavour without overpowering it. And the Italian pine nuts are just divine.
This basil pesto, from family run ROI, is wonderful example of a traditional Ligurian pesto. Made in Liguria from just sweet basil, pine nuts, extra virgin olive oil and a little sea salt. No cashew nuts, cheap cheese or other non-essential ingredients to bulk it out.
