Why we love it
Made only with the best natural ingredients following the authentic recipe in Liguria, this traditional pesto DOP is made using plenty of DOP Genoese basil, extra virgin olive oil, pinenuts and cheese and it is perfect for a quick, tasty pasta or as an ingredient for plenty more recipes, pesto is a very versatile ingredient, from fish to meat can be used everywhere.
Pesto is now made all over Italy, but the recipe was created in Liguria and if it uses DOP Genoese basil and it is made within the region, the pesto can have the "DOP" appellation. Our pesto DOP is gluten and wheat free, suitable for every one, without any of the bad stuff used in industrial products.
The artisan who made it
Italyabroad.com was founded in 2003 in response to a lack of quality Italian wine and food, as soon as Andrea (the founder) landed in the UK noticed that Italian products available were not the ones he was used to when living in Italy.
From wine to food, Andrea could not find the quality he was used to and coming from a wine making family, he decided to embark in a journey to source quality Italian wine and food from small Italian producers: Italyabroad.com’s mission is to discover and import Italian gems from small, little known, yet dedicated, Italian wineries and food producers.
All products we import are of the highest quality and made using the best, natural ingredients and respecting the environment, none of our product contains palm oil or preservatives, we do not import industrial or poor quality products, we believe in a healthy living and eating and drinking well is part of the Mediterranean diet.
Since starting in 2003 Italyabroad.com has won several awards, especially for its wines, from best newcomer from the UK Sommelier Association to UK's people wine Award.
