PESTO - MARCELLA HAZAN



Pesto - Marcella Hazan image

From the Julia Child of Italian Cooking, this is Marcella Hazan's recipe for pesto. Its the first I've ever tasted and the only one I'll ever use. I've tried other recipes and nothing surpasses this, especially not any you'll get from a restaurant. Quality ingredients are important in simple recipes like this. The aromas in pesto's ingredients are subtle and its flavor varies depending on the brand and quality of the ingredients you choose. Make sure to find the best olive oil, the freshest basil (if it doesn't smell right or fragrant, don't bother using it, it will be a waste of expensive ingredients.) The cheeses mentioned should be sought and used. Use a high quality butter if possible.

Categories     Sauces

Time 17m

Yield 6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 8

2 cups fresh basil leaves, tightly packed
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons pine nuts
2 garlic cloves, chopped fine before putting in the processor
salt
1/3 cup parmesan cheese, freshly grated (parrmigiano-reggiano)
2 tablespoons pecorino romano cheese, freshly grated (or pecorino fiore sardo)
3 tablespoons butter, softened to room temperature

Steps:

  • Briefly soak and wash the basil in cold water, and gently pat it thoroughly DRY with paper towels.
  • Put the basil, olive oil, pine nuts, chopped garlic, and an ample pinch of salt in the processor bowl, and process to a uniform, creamy consistency.
  • Transfer to a bowl, and mix in the two grated cheeses by hand. It is worth the slight effort to do it by hand to obtain the notably superior texture it produces.
  • When the cheese has been evenly amalgamated with the other ingredients, mix in the softened butter, distributing it uniformly into the sauce.
  • When spooning the pesto over pasta, dilute it slightly with a tablespoon or two of the hot water in which the pasta was cooked.
  • Freezing pesto: Make the sauce through to the end of Step 2, cover with a layer of olive oil and freeze it without cheese and butter in it. Add the cheese and butter when it is thawed, just before serving.

TOMATO, MOZZARELLA AND CHERRY SALAD

Categories     side-dish

Time 35m

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 14

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 to 3 vine-ripe or heirloom tomatoes
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1 pint fresh Bing cherries, pitted and halved (or husk cherries, stemmed and halved)
1 tablespoon sugar
10 to 12 sprigs fresh tarragon, stemmed
8 sprigs fresh basil, stemmed
8 sprigs fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan
2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil, or more as needed
Coarse sea salt
1 pound fresh mozzarella, cut into 12 slices

Steps:

  • Make the dressing: Whisk together the olive oil and balsamic with the mustard and 1 tablespoon cool water in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Make the salad: Place the tomatoes on a flat surface. Cut the smaller ones in half and the larger ones into slices or wedges. Arrange all the tomatoes and cherries in a single layer, flesh-side up, on a large serving platter or individual plates. Sprinkle them with the sugar.
  • "Herb" the mozzarella: Use a pair of scissors to coarsely cut the tarragon, basil and parsley into pieces and toss in a medium bowl with the Parmesan, olive oil and a pinch of salt. The herbs should feel slightly dampened and sticky from the olive oil. If not, add more olive oil by the tablespoon as needed. Press both sides of the mozzarella slices into the herb mix to coat them, then intersperse the cheese pieces amongst the tomatoes on the serving platter or plates.
  • Season the dish with salt and spoon all the dressing over the tomatoes and cheese.
