Alessandro & Stefano Walnut sauce

Traditionally made. Slightly sweet and creamy with a clear walnut taste.


The Walnut Sauce is a traditional Ligurian sauce. It was mostly consumed during the winter months, when fresh herbs were not available. Alessandro & Stefano still produce their Walnut Sauce following artisanal methods and using only the best ingredients. It has a ivory colour and a creamy consistency. The flavour is slightly sweet with a clear walnut taste rounded with a touch of cream. Some Grana Panado and a point of nutmeg add the finishing touch.

Shelf Life

Alessandro & Stefano's Walnut Sauce will keep for five weeks unopened in the fridge. Once opened keep refrigerated and consume within 3 days.

How to use

Never cook your Walnut Sauce; you will lose both its taste and its creamy texture. For warm preparations it should be added last and allowed to gently come to temperature. To make a pasta sauce dilute your Walnut Sauce with some of the pasta cooking water as shown in this recipe.

A Perfect microclimate and love are the secrets to this incredible pesto

“Our history comes from a long experience in the agricultural sector and it begins in 1827 in our greenhouses in front of the sea called ‘Serre sul Mare’ “, Alessandro explains. “Thanks to the famous terraces, we were able to create strips of territory in a landscape which is not so conducive to agriculture”.
