    Cook's tips

    Add any leftover pesto to pasta dishes, or mix with breadcrumbs and use as a topping for baked fish.

    Drinks recommendation

    The seasoning here needs a wine that’s crisp and
    fresh. Profits from our new Waitrose Foundation wines go towards social and environmental projects on the maker’s wine farm in South Africa: Cederberg Waitrose Foundation Chenin Blanc, South Africa.
