I love pesto and before this cookbook, I never realized there were so many different ways to make pesto. This book has amazing recipes, not only pesto recipes but how to cook with them in soups, salads, pasta, meat, seafood, etc. There are also recipes for Herbed Oil Purees, Mayonnaises and Vinaigrettes. The Avocado Mayonnaise in a turkey sandwich…..delish! I’d only made pesto with what I thought was the traditional way but the Classic Genovese Pesto adds a little butter that helps keep the color bright! Who knew? The Tomatillo-Sunflower Salsa Verde is fantastic, and the Poblano and Fresh Oregano Puree is one I want to try next. I found the recipes to be fairly easy to make, especially the Flank Steak with Pesto and the Butterflied Pork Tenderloin, just to name a couple. Not only does this book have delicious recipes (there are still many yet to try), the photos are absolutely gorgeous. I received an advance digital ARC of The Pesto Cookbook via NetGalley but I ended up buying the paperback copy for my cookbook collection. If you enjoy cooking, I definitely recommend this cookbook!
I love pesto sauce and never realised that there were so many uses for it. Theses recipes are the best and have made me want to explore more and come up with some of my own. I loved the history behind pesto which made this more than another cookery book. My daughter and I love cilantro, and my husband hates it. For years we have made cilantro pesto, frozen it in ice cube trays, and add a cube to our mexican food without turning Jerry off of our favorite foods. I see I will have to start labeling my ziplock bags of green cubes in the freezer!
