The traditional recipe for pesto comes from Italy and more specifically Genoa and contains garlic, fresh basil, pine nuts, crushed with olive oil and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese or Pecorino. The original method for making pesto is to crush the ingredients in stone or wooden pestle in order to achieve the necessary consistency.

We sat on the  charis in front of a long line with bowls full of sushi, shrimps and other delicacies. Some of the dishes were familiar to me because I'm a big fan of sushi and I plan to share a sushi recipe soon.
