Machine for pesto

The popular sauce or spread pesto, is a sauce originally originated from Genoa in the Liguria region of Northern Italy. The first to mention the modern version of the condiment was Giovanni Battista Ratto back in 1870. The word pesto in the Italian dictionary is derived from a word meaning to “pound or crush” which probably come from how the different herbs were crushed by using a mortar or pestle. Pesto is today one of the most popular condiments in the world.
