Origin & History
Pesto is one of the most famous Italian sauces in the world and its classic fresh aroma immediately evokes images of Summer and sun-kissed seascapes. It is a native sauce of the Liguria region, where it has been produced since the Middle Ages. It is usually made by combining crushed local basil, garlic, pine nuts and Parmesan cheese in a mortar, together with extra virgin olive oil. Our Z&Z blend contains sun-dried tomatoes instead of the parmesan cheese, which adds warmth and delicious sunshine to the fresh and herbal aroma.
