Why we love it

Our DOP Genoese pesto, faithful to the original recipe is made only with the best ingredients, handpicked DOP Genoese basil, Italian extra virgin olive oil, toasted pine nuts, and premium cheeses blend harmoniously in our pesto, ensuring an authentic culinary experience. Versatile and vibrant, our pesto transcends pasta, elevating a myriad of dishes from seafood to meats, infusing them with its distinctive aroma and flavor.

Free from gluten and wheat, our pesto eliminates the need for expensive "free from" versions, offering inclusivity without compromise. Embrace the freshness of unpasteurized or sterilized Pesto alla Genovese. Amidst a sea of pesto jars lining supermarket shelves, ingredient list is the key. Many tout "pesto" but have different ingredients, substituting basil with cheaper alternatives or adding gluten derivatives to remedy the lack of consistency. Our pesto has only a bunch of natural ingredients

When preparing pasta with pesto, combine a couple of teaspoons per serving in a small bowl with a splash of hot pasta water and extra virgin olive oil. Toss with cooked pasta, rigorously al dente, generously sprinkle with cheese, and enjoy it. Buon appetito!

The artisan who made it

Gran Cucina has its root in a farm at the beginning of the XIX century. After buying a farm, the great grand father of the current generation started growing vegetables whilst the great grand mother started preparing local delicacies using their own grown products. Within a few years the reputation went outside the village, they started to supply nearby cities and villages. The family got bigger and so more help came.

Now, more than a century after, the same family and the same recipes are followed, using only the best local produces, including the very famous Alba truffle which is used in many products, from extra virgin olive oil to truffle honey to truffle butter.
