Wild garlic pesto

One of the things I love about Twitter is that it puts you in touch with people who share your passion and creates the most unlikely and serendipitous opportunities to work together. Like a request from Andrew Sartain of Wild Food Larder for me to find a wine match for his wild garlic pesto (right though the picture doesn't do justice to the glorious deep green colour it actually was.)

We met this morning, I tasted it and it was terrific - punchily garlicky, a genuinely British alternative to Italian pesto. I reckoned it would go well with Sauvignon Blanc, dry Italian white wines like Verdicchio and Picpoul de Pinet, a Muscadet-like white from the South of France, suggestions Andrew is going to put on the leaflets he's going to hand out at this weekend's Love Food Festival at Brunels Old Station at Temple Meads in Bristol.

He will also be selling it - and the charcuterie he makes - at the weekly farmers' market in Bath.

If you don't live anywhere near either you can find the recipe on his website - click on Recipes and scroll down.

  1. Looks very interesting, can imagine it packing quite a punch. Nice suggestions, im quite sure you drank a bottle of each just to make sure it perfectly matched. Oh the sacrifices one has to make :)
