a marriage made in a mortar
Pestâ means to "crush" or "pound" in the Genoese dialect in Italy, from which the word pesto is thought to have derived. It refers to the use of a mortar and pestle to make pesto. This implement - used to crush and pound herbs and spices - also feels right at home in Asian kitchens.
