Hi ! My name is Yasmin and I am the author, cook and photographer behind Walnut Pesto.

I am a South African, passionate foodie, a pharmacist by profession and a photography enthusiast.

Walnut Pesto was started in April 2015.
Cooking with Walnut Pesto is about creating simple, practical and delicious meals that are packed with loads of wholesome flavour. My blog explores different cuisines, new flavours and innovative combinations.

I would like to think of my blog as a learning playground for the self-schooled cook. The content posted on the blog aims to highlight and harness the flavours of seasonal and fresh ingredients and provides easy to follow recipes for both savoury and sweet dishes.

Hope you enjoy your culinary experience with me and I thank you in advance for your support and feedback !!
