About the recipe

'Perle e Basilico' (Penne with Pearls and Basil Pesto) - Weight: 770g  *   1 dinner for 4 people or 2 dinners for 2 people  *  Cooking time: 20 minutes


This dish 'Perle e Basilico' combines much-loved, traditional flavours with the esthetic style of contemporary cuisine.  Genovese pesto, a recipe from the Liguria region of Italy dating back to the early '800s is one the most appreciated dishes of Italian cuisine and in this recipe the Michelin Starred Chef Andrea Larossa has combined it with exquisite Pesto Pearls which give a decisive boost to the dish’s character and flavour as well as being a surprising decorative addition during the plating phase, as if you were in a true gourmet restaurant. 

About the Chef

Andrea Larossa, One Michelin Star given in 2017 at Ristorante La Rossa, Alba

Andrea was born in 1980 and was raised in a home tied to his mother’s cooking traditions from the Lazio region of Italy and to his father’s from the Basilicata region of Italy…a combination of recipes, flavours and aromas intertwined with the pleasure of eating together.

He says that he has 'learned from anywhere and anyone' becoming interested in diverse cuisines, and eventually training with internationally famed chefs.
