  1. Happy Mother’s Day Pang. I hope it was delicious and beautiful!

    I’m so excited garlic scapes will be showing up soon at our farmer’s markets! I just ran out of frozen pesto from last spring; I generally hoard scapes! Scape pesto is divine on pizza. Your recipe sounds so nice! I’ve not ever used cheddar in pesto, but I’m looking forward to it, in addition to the kale! What kind of cheese or creme is under the portobello in the last photo? Thank you!

    Your photos, are an inspiration. Thank you.

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Traci. I hope you try it 🙂

      By the way, that was ricotta cheese 🙂


  2. A beautiful post, as always. We have wild garlic, which is similar but not as much stalk and much more leaf, and I am using it most days in one way or another – all simple ways. I am lucky enough to have some within a three minute walk (basically I live adjacent to dappled woodland). I love your scapes oil and must do that to help preserve a little of my stash a while longer. Right now I am throwing wild garlic into stir-fries, mixing with ricotta and lemon to spread on toast and fold into omelettes, but also I have made loads of pesto with with various seeds and nuts and popping them in the freezer. No doubt you are doing similar. The season for spring wild foods is winding up too soon! Your images are just so stunning, Pang. *melt*

      I saw your post, and I love it. Pizza is my favourite recipe on your post 🙂

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Kellie. So happy our posts are in sync 🙂


  3. Lovely, lovely post, Pang. I’ve always been fascinated with garlic scapes but not quite sure what to do with them. Your recipes are a perfect way to try them out. 🙂

      Hope you find those scapes soon, Elsa. I think you will like them as much as I do. I also can’t wait to see your post about the scapes as well 🙂


  4. Wow! Beautiful post and photos again! New Mums and old Mums need recipes like these. I am a pesto addict! I had posted a kale-almond and spring onion pesto individually about a year back so you know how much i love recipes like these. But best of all is the naan bread. I have leftover naan dough in the fridge and ricotta…off to get the mushrooms! I bet it’ll be a huge hit!

      Yay!!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE when my recipe inspires someone to make it, esp. you, my friend 🙂


  5. This nan topped with ricotta and mushrooms look scrumptious. I have never played with garlic scapes, but if I can ever get my hands on them, I will definitely give this recipe a try.
    As always, incredible photography!

  6. Beautiful photos, Pang!!! The handwritten tags are adorable! I am totally obsessed with pesto and am loving the creative combination in this one! I agree with you on how versatile condiments like these can be, the possibilities are endless! I haven’t seen any scapes yet at my farmers market, can’t wait!

      I know it that you will like the pesto recipe as you are considered, to me, the pesto queen, my friend. So glad you like my pesto version. And best of luck on the pop-up dinner, ok. … xoxo


  7. Hope you had a great Mother’s day. Absolutely adoring your pictures here. Pesto is my favorite thing to have on hand, so easy to whip up so many dishes. Your naan idea is amazing. I haven’t worked with scapes ever, so intrigued. I’m gonna look for it.
    Hope you have a beautiful weekend.
