Pesto and Romesco from tastecollectiv
Another treat from the BBC Good Food Show arrived in the post today and this one was right up my street.
We were sent a sample of a Pesto and Romesco sauce from a new company launching at this weekend’s Good Food Show.
The company has a real sense of adventure and authenticity which is reflected in their products.
The Pesto was rich and creamy with a really strong kick of cheese.
It contained only Pecorino Sardo, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Fresh Basil, Pine Nuts, Roasted Garlic and Sea Salt so you’re getting a pure and wholesome sauce.
Pecorino Sardo DOP is a sheep’s cheese that comes from the local Sardinian breed of sheep.
I tried this pesto on some basil and pine nut ravioli and it was delicious.
However, the Romesco was the real surprise for me.
This tangy red sauce contains Piquillo Peppers, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Ground Almonds, Paprika, Sherry Vinegar, Roasted tomatoes, Roasted Garlic and Sea salt.
Romeso originates from Catalonia and is made by the fisherman to enjoy with their catch.
I could eat this sauce by the bucket! It was sweet from the peppers and creamy from the almonds but the tang of the vinegar kept you coming back for more.
I tried it with chilli pasta, roasted red peppers and black olives but ill definitely be heading to the Good Food Show to get myself a little more. I think it would be great with a BBQ or some roasted vegetables.
Victoria and Mark are launching their new company tastecollectiv at the Good Food Show in Harrogate that starts this Friday.
We believe we have created some great tasting sauces by finding the old original recipes while using the best ingredients.
