If you’ve been following me on Instagram, then you know that I just spent the most glorious week in Italy and Switzerland. If not, then maybe you’ve heard me bubble over with joy on the phone, or via e-mail, or over text. It’s all true — I spent a week traveling as a guest of Eurail to experience their new Italy-Switzerland pass, and it was all the things. All of them. But more about that later. I’m still recovering and pinching myself to make sure it all wasn’t a dream.
In the meantime, today I’m sharing a recipe that I’ve fallen in love with here in London using two local British herbs. I made this wild garlic pesto orecchiette right before I left on my trip, and my whole family gobbled it up in minutes. It’s a combination of light and herbal, of fresh and spicy, and it’s just such a magical dish that I thought I’d share it with you today, along with tips on how you might duplicate this dish if you’re not in the UK.
