Wild garlic pesto with goat cheese

Wild garlic pesto with goat cheese

As a parent, you know the feeling when watching your kids eat your favorite foods- when they won’t even leave you a small bite. Now we can offer you something that probably won’t interest any children under the age of 16. If that worries you, we assure you, not only garlic aficionados fall for our wild garlic pesto. Even moderate garlic fans will find this pesto to their liking. We vouch for it.

Although you might imagine a garlic bomb, the pesto has a very well balanced and mild taste without losing the wild garlic’s distinguishing pleasant flavor. You might even consider a more direct approach – spreading the pesto on a slice of bread. From meat and fish marinade to pasta or soup, you can use it in many ways.

The wild garlic grows on the mountain meadows of organically certified areas around the village of Zhizhevo, Southern Bulgaria. Our herbalists’ friends forage for and pick the leaves in the early spring before the blooming begins. Around that time, bears begin waking up from hibernation and seek as their first food the fresh and wild green leaves. It’s no coincidence that wild garlic is also known as bear garlic in Bulgarian. Before the bloom, the plant’s beneficial features are the strongest. Next to its antibacterial and antifungal qualities, wild garlic is said to stimulate the immune system.
