Video :: Homemade Pesto

10 May 2012




Thought I’ll share with you my guest appearance in one of the videos that’s been produced for Food Revolution Day Singapore. A bunch of us made good eats together in the kitchen and filmed it. Check out the video below, in which I helped to prepare homemade pesto.

I have no idea when Episode 2 will be available, so why don’t I share first the recipes of what we assembled that day?
