Our employee has once again come up with a recipe. Of course, we cook with regional ingredients, like those from MaMa's Unstruttaler. Great pesto lovers get their money's worth here. Pesto is very easy to prepare and even keeps for a few days in the fridge.
With much love she has conjured up rustic gnocchi with walnut pesto. You can get the ingredients from regional artisans, among others. The fresh pasture-raised eggs and the healthy rapeseed oil, for example, are available from MaMa's Unstruttaler in Balgstädt. You can buy the high-quality flour at the Zeddenbach mill in Freyburg (Unstrut).
