Today is the second day in a row in which I got to sleep in--oh the luxury! At around noon, I decided it was time for lunch.
I finally decided to open the pesto genovese, from Mario Batali's Eataly, which I'd been holding onto for quite some time...
|with Genoa basil, cheese and nuts|
David said it was top-notch while I, although liking it as well, didn't think it compared to the homemade pesto my friend's mother makes.

However, it paired well with fresh, toasted baguette and I also enjoyed a musty Rosenborg-Castello Danish blue cheese and quince cheese over Wasa crispbread. Of course, I paired it all with wine--a slightly effervescent Cavit moscato which David picked up on his way home from rehearsal at Juilliard last night.
