Large marble mortar with a diameter of 12 cm, made by Excelsa.
Those who love the original Genoese pesto recipe know that traditionally the ingredients should be pounded and not blended. For this reason mortar preparation still resists faster but less healthy methods, such as the use of blenders, because the heat of the blades at speed could compromise the smell and taste of the final product. The Excelsa mortar is made of marble, a material that is well suited for contact with food. The mortar is equipped with a pestle also in marble for a perfect pounding. To prepare an excellent pesto you must first pound the garlic and pine nuts well, then a few grains of coarse salt, the basil, add the olive oil and lastly the cheese. The large marble mortar from Excelsa is also suitable for mincing spices and herbs. Order it here on Newpop. Dimensions: Diameter 12 cm, Height 14 cm Material: Marble
