The Barn on Trezzi Farm


IMG_0438We like pesto here at ye olde SFB, which is kind of a hard thing to love here in Spokane. For good pesto there are really only two options: one is to make it yourself, which, granted, isn’t too time consuming. But why bother when Trezzi Farm provides a tastier, and probably cheaper, alternative.

For $4 you get a 8oz container which likely will last you a while. The pesto is very flavorful, and a little goes a long way. Put some on a Petit Chat loaf with a bit of fresh mozzarella and tomatoes, and you’re set.

In fact, pick up some meatballs too, because really? How bad can they really be? (Answer: They can’t.)

The only thing missing is fresh pasta, which they don’t make because, apparently, Spokane doesn’t see why they should pay more for it. I mean, seriously? I’d kill for fresh pasta, but have yet been able to track any down for wholesale. If anyone know where they sell (good) fresh pasta in town, let us know. We’d like to know.

Anyway, I digress. Trezzi Farm is awesome, if only for the pesto, and soon they’ll have their own wine too. Go give them some love.
