The Perla factory from Genova in Liguria not only makes the best pesto and olive spreads around, they also source the best Ligurian porcini mushrooms and pine nuts. They are regular staples for us here at Italian Harvest. With the incomparable quality of their products, their Pesto alla Genovese really stands out as one of the best you can find. There is a movement in Italy to restrict the title of "pesto" to only products from Liguria, where Genova is capital. Basil grown along the steep coastline in this part of Italy is sweet, and when mixed with the buttery and delicate Ligurian olive oil, pine nuts, and Grano Padano cheese, the result is an exquisitely well balanced pesto.
