PESTO:

The Modern

Mother Sauce

Most people are familiar with classic Italian pesto, a green sauce made from basil, garlic, pine nuts, Parmigiano-Reggiano, salt, and olive oil. But Leslie Lennox, founder of the award-winning artisanal pesto company Hope’s Gardens, shows us that pesto need not be limited to its original ingredients―and that creative pestos can serve as building blocks for all manner of flavorful dishes, just like any good “mother sauce.”
