the pesto recipe is good, but pretty basic stuff

Twiglett Wed 20-Apr-05 16:08:23

buggered if I'm making me own pesto

bundle Wed 20-Apr-05 16:15:11

ahh that's what i thought, too...but life has changed now i make a jamjar every week. press finger on food processor, it's that hard!

TinyGang Wed 20-Apr-05 16:21:33

I wonder if ther's such a thing as a homemade turkey twizzler...?

JoolsToo Wed 20-Apr-05 17:22:33

bundle - you can blow glass too?

hoxtonchick Wed 20-Apr-05 17:24:20

homemade pesto is soooooooo much better than the stuff in jars. not that i've got the jamie book.

Twiglett Wed 20-Apr-05 18:06:00

visions of bundle blowing a glass jar every week

simple old pasta bianco is a fave in our house

The recipe for roast chicken and roast potatoes is just fab and my fave so far.

Not tried the stews yet, will have to give them a go.

Is this book worth buying then? Have his others and only use them occasionally plus I dont eat meat - just fish. But did make the veggie sauce printed on other thread and loved it - opinions?

taramac Thu 21-Apr-05 10:54:01

Recipe for pesto wld be much appreciated bundle please!

bundle Thu 21-Apr-05 13:21:13

here you go taramac,it's a sort of hybrid of the jamie oliver/nigel slater one - ie i'm not v strict on quantities! - but around a handful of pine nuts with a crushed clove of garlic, two or three handsful of basil leaves, whizz in processor and add extra virgin olive oil gradually until gooey but not sloppy. i also add a squirt of lemon juice. then fold in finely grated parmesan and keep in a screwtop jar in fridge. you may want to add more olive oil when you use it if it's thick
