A delicious stir through sauce with fresh mint and new season peas - along with Waipara Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Emilio's Stagionato cheese (made in sunny Darfield). As this pesto is more delicate than usual it would make a great companion to any seafood dishes or scrumptious just with fresh pasta. This works as stir through no-cook sauce for an incredibly quick dinner, totally delicious as a dip too.
Pesto flavour changes weekly and with the seasons.
Alba and Stephano are proudly the first pasta makers to use 100% local New Zealand ingredients, including the durum wheat harvested for their pasta. Durum wheat has the special qualities that authentic pasta needs, and luckily for all of us it has been recently reintroduced to New Zealand in the Wairarapa region after decades of not being grown here. All of their ingredients are seasonal, fresh, and as local as possible, and they work alongside growers to ensure quality production to get the standard of produce required for the most flavoursome pasta and sauces. They work with the seasons, and every week their menu changes to reflect what’s fresh and most delicious!
