the intoxicating aroma of freshly made pesto
Learning to make pesto from just-picked basil, home-grown garlic, pine nuts, freshly ground 30-month-aged parmesan and our very own Genius Loci organic extra virgin olive oil is always another highlight of the summer Cooking Classes, as is cooking with freshly picked zucchini.
