Video! Wild Garlic & Walnut Pesto

There’s no beer here I’m afraid. This is my first experiment with video… it is a bit cringe-worthy to watch for me, but hey, it took a lot of time to create so I may as well publish it to somehow make up for the time? Here it is:

Wild Garlic (Ransoms) Pesto, w/ Walnuts, Parmesan, & Rapeseed Oil


  • 250g Wild Garlic (Ransoms)
  • 100g Toasted Walnut Halves
  • 70g Grated Parmesan
  • half a teaspoon of salt
  • “enough” oil to achieve the desired consistency

No need to be too precise, everything can be adjusted to suit your tastes! An addition of the zest & juice of half a lemon would “zing” it up nicely.

This is not a recipe for anyone who fears “garlic breath”! :)

Thing’s I’ve used this pesto for this week: sizzled in olive oil for a simple pasta sauce; lined some puff pastry sausage rolls; simply spread on bread! Most of it went into ice-cube trays in the freezer for future use though.

I’m thinking of doing a bit more of this sort of thing, should I? It’d have more of a beery twist normally. I’ve filmed another cooking session which does involve some beer… now I just need to find the time to cut 25 minutes of video into something less tedious yet still useful.

It’d probably help if I wasn’t using my ultra-wide helmet-cam and its shitty built in mic!

Bon appetit!
