Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 155652028X, Paperback)This is the definitive book about pesto, written by an enthusiastic author who is so obsessed with her subject that she has been known to play her violin to her basil. The Pesto Manifesto is primarily a cookbook, but it also includes lore, background information, growing and harvesting instructions, and advice for turning one's own pesto passion into a livelihood by starting a pesto-making business.
This book, originally published in 1987, is more relevant than ever because of the burgeoning interest in Slow Food, all things Italian, organic gardening, and creative cuisine. The recipes in this book bring the spirit and taste of the artisan tradition to your own kitchen table. Pesto, which derives from the Italian word for "pounding, " is also a food of choice for sustainable hedonists who prefer a mortar and pestle to a blender or food processor.
