3 minute Pesto using the award winning Willow Creek Extra Virgin olive oil


As a busy Wife & Mom (not to say other pips are not busy), lets just say for those who are super busy, this recipe from Willow Creek is a life saviour. Not only is it easy to make for those without any time to cook, its damn DELISH! go on and try it. Add a dash more Willow Creek Olive oil if you need a more softer texture :).

Talking about Willow Creek, did you know that Willow Creek has been on the receiver end of no less than twenty awards this year alone. The latest in their trophy cabinet are four gold medals from Olivinus 2015, held in Mendoza, Argentina. The 24 judges, lead by one of the world’s foremost experts, Dr. Antonio Giuseppe Lauro, granted Gran Prestige Gold medals to both the Directors’ Reserve and the Estate Blend (both deserving of the required 86+ points from 100). A Prestige Gold for their Lemon Flavoured olive oil and a Gold for the Coriander flavoured oil. Anyway, lets get to it, try this Truffle & Walnut Pesto.
