Parco Naturale Regionale del Beigua



This is undoubtedly the most famous Ligurian condiment in the world, used to season main courses: from soft potato gnocchi, trofiette and lasagne, to simple trenette with potatoes and green beans. The main ingredient in the preparation of traditional pesto is basil, widely cultivated in the western region of Liguria and in the towns of the Beigua Riviera. The bright green leaves, whose inimitable flavour is influenced by the sea air, are mixed with garlic, pine nuts and coarse salt followed by Parmigiano Reggiano and Sardinian pecorino, and all the ingredients are then blended with extra virgin olive oil from the Ligurian Riviera.
