Best Pesto in the World is at Farina?

Alexandra at Romancing the Strawberry is friendly with Danny Bowien, the guy at Farina responsible for this lofty claim. Today, she relays the story:

Fortunately the contest was set up so that only the technique of the competitors, for which there were 315, could be tested. Each participant had the same 5 ingredients: Genoese basil, Parmigiano Reggiano, Fiore Sardo cheese, Ligurian extra virgin olive oil, Vessalico garlic, sea salt, and Italian pine nuts (I gathered this info from one of Marcia Gagliardi’s recent blogs on her site tablehopper). It was the technique that mattered, and apparently Bowien’s is the best in the world!

Impressed? I haven’t been to Farina because looking at it just makes me miss the cute little bakery that used to be there.
