Every fan of Italian food only wait for the next, 4th edition of International Day of Italian Cuisine. As usually, this will take place on the 17th January 2011. This is a worldwide celebration of truly authentic Italian cuisine.
Last year, we had a pleasure to celebrate this day in Kulinarne Impresje and we learned how to prepare a quality authentic Tagliatelle al Ragu Bolognese. This year's official dish is Pesto alla Genovese, originated in Genovese, in Region of Liguria. Pesto is one of the most popular uncooked sauces, reproduced with many variations, depending on the country.
Together with Chefs from more than 40 countries we will be taking part in creating authentic Pesto alla Genovese shared by GVCI on this special day but any italian food lover can join us in this celebration.
GVCI - Virtual Group of Italian Chefs is a network of over 900 professional, italian chefs, working in 70 countries. They all work together to preserve and improve the standard of quality and authenticity of italian gastronomy and products in the world. You can read more about the GVCI here.

Some of you might have a difficulties in finding specific ingredients, depending on a country. But we're sure that this lovely Pesto alla Genovese can be easily made at home by using fresh home basil, pine nuts, Parmigiano Reggiano, fresh garlic, sea salt good quality 'Extra Virgin' olive oil. The only tools you need are marble mortar (or any mortar you have in your kitchen) and wooden pestle.
