about

The classic pesto mixture of basil, garlic, olive oil, nuts, and Parmesan cheese is a popular favorite, but why stop at basil? Unlock the full potential of pesto by introducing into the mix other delicious herbs, including rosemary, mint, parsley, thyme, tarragon, and cilantro. This diverse collection of recipes for fresh pestos, pastes, and purées takes inspiration from cultures beyond Italy, with international delights such as Moroccan Chermoula, Brazilian Tempero Purée, and Peanut-Cilantro Pesto. In addition to 49 pesto recipes, 67 creative recipes for cooking with pesto show off how versatile these simple sauces can be.
Olwen Woodier is the author of six cookbooks, including The Pesto Cookbook and The Apple Cookbook. She has written about food for 35 years, including articles for the New York Times, Gourmet, Woman’s Day, and Family Circle. She offers cooking classes at her home, Glenfiddich Farm, in Leesburg, Virginia.
