Thoughts and Inspirations

Traditionally it was prepared in a mortar, pounding all the ingredients together to make a savoury sauce to accompany bread.
The creation of pesto dates back to the first three decades of the nineteenth century, when it was quoted by Giovanni Battista Rattonel in his book "Genoese cuisine".
In this first version of the recipe the use of a Dutch cheese is indicated, which was later replaced by parmesan.
It seems, however, that the origin of this sauce is much older and that it is a revisitation of a sauce known as "agliata" since 1200.
