Food chats: Wild Garlic Pesto & Nettle Beer on KCLR Drive

Continuing a run of food chats on KCLR Drive, Francis Nesbitt dropped in to studio on Friday and didn’t come with his hands hanging.

Wild garlic pesto with nettles, a labneh cheese, crackers and some nettle beer went down a treat with Le Caveau’s Wine of the Week – a 2012 Rosso di Montepulciano.

From picking wild garlic to what to do with nettles, hen parties that might get a little dirty and more besides, take a listen back as Francis spills the beans on what’s wild this month on your doorstep.

Bonus: Grab Francis’ recipe for Nettle Beer here.
