Re: Pesto

Thanks. My pesto has always comes out of jar. Maybe I'll try this version. I even have some basil growing on my balcony.

Re: Pesto

""""has always come""""

I don't like Polish made pasta. No taste. Cardboard texture. My mother-in-law also cooks it to a sloppy pulp. Same with rice.

Re: Pesto

And your MIL won't know what to make of carrot cake!

"Is that coconut ...?" cue puzzled look.

Re: Pesto

That recipe sounds a bit like provencale Pistou - always a bit nicer and fresher tasting than Pesto and a world away from the bottled stuff. Works well with other herbs too.

They use the wrong cheese, the wrong oil and the wrong nuts sometimes. Beware also of Polish Tzatziki (the kind that Albert sell in big round tubs - others are better) - it's made with white cheese rather than Greek yoghurt!

Re: Pesto

... and have you noticed that one brand of Polish feta was forced to re-name itself "Favita" due to the lack of similarity with the original product?

>>My mother-in-law also cooks it to a sloppy pulp.

imho polish pasta is an abomination. it's impossible to *not* cook it to a sloppy pulp. i always buy italian ( and some day, in recognition of my services to the industry i'll get a Free Italian to bring home and set on a shelf somewhere )

Re: Pesto
