Notes from Chef Barone:

This recipe wants to emphasize the aromaticity and fatness of the pistachio, meanwhile working it raw without passing it in the pan which would alter its aromatic system, then the non-addition of salty foods apart from the note of mortadella more than anything else as a historical and widely shared quote in the combination.
