Le Grand Pestos-Part 1


There was an unexpected knock on our front door and a delivery person handed me a box with my name on it.  I eagerly looked inside as I often shop on line but knew that there were no books that were due on my doorstep.  Carefully packed in a styrofoam box was a freezer bag stuffed with ice packs and three colourful bags of pesto.  I put them in the fridge with a note on them saying Do Not Use as I was on my way out of town that evening.

A couple of days later when I arrived back home, D informed me that there was a lot of interest in sampling the pesto products and so I proposed the idea of our first family Iron Chef competition in lieu of our mandatory Sunday dinner.

Our larder had been needing restocking, so D headed out for supplies.  Teams were decided and first we drew courses from a hat and then one of three pestos: Garden, 4  nuts & Cheese and Sun-dried tomato.  Of yes … and wine was poured.

The teams were D & Daughter #1, The Frenchman and Daughter #2 and the Son and his wife.  They were apparently taking this all very seriously.

First up were D and Daughter #1 as they were assigned the appetizer course and the 4 nuts & cheese pesto.  Stay tuned to see the results.
