Publisher's Note: Whether you say "to-may-to" or you say "to-mah-to," chances are you'll
agree there's nothing like the taste of a sun-ripened heirloom tomato and
this beautifully photographed book is a cornucopia for the tomato
First there are the recipes: 50 in all, provided by such notable
food names as One Market, Caprial's Bistro, Jimtown Store, and DaVero
Olive Oil. Perfect for brunch, cocktails, or dinner, tomatoes are
showcased in such delicious dishes as Gazpacho with Cucumber Salsa
Verde, Cheese and Pesto Fondue with Tomato-Foccacia Skewers, and Grilled
Sea Bass with Lemon-Oregano, Tomato Relish. Accompanying each is a wine
pairing suggested by Kendall-Jackson, which each year hosts the
Heirloom Tomato Festival in Sonoma, the inspiration for this book.
there's the photographic glossary of the top twenty five heirloom varieties,
detailed cultivation information, and an invaluable source list of seeds
and plants to entice those who want to eat their fruit and grow it too.
Add to this, advice on choosing and storing tomatoes and a brief
history, and you have a book as vibrant as the tomato it celebrates.
