MEET MARIA AND GREG
Maria was 19 years old when she tasted pesto for the first time. She thought it to be the elixir of the gods and vowed to herself that when older, would learn how to perfect the recipe. Many years later, she did! As her family grew, she knew that staying home and providing for them was what she wanted to do. Her husband Greg designed the logo, their pet Chihuahua, Buddha, became the inspiration for the name, and voila, the rest is history!

Pesto has its origins in Liguria, Italy, where people have been making it for hundreds of years with the brilliant green basil that grows wild on the hillsides. The popularity of pesto has spread like crazy as people across the world have come to love its heady aroma and its bold, satisfying flavor.
