The taste of summer: a slice of beefsteak tomato with a dash of salt. Or better yet: Cherry Tomatoes with Basil and Garlic made with just-picked, vine-ripened tomatoes.
Tomatoes offers home chefs the opportunity to cook with the freshest ingredients available: those grown in their own garden patch. Author and award-winning food journalist Patricia Mack provides pointers for growing tomatoes, including directions for optimum soil conditions, information on the collection and germination of the seeds, and tips for keeping your plants pest and disease free. Ms. Mack includes a list of tomato varieties and growing times. She then details the various ways of preparing tomatoes for the more eighty easy-to-prepare recipes that follow, including Norwegian Tomato Dill Soup, Pesto-Packed Tomatoes, London Broil with Jalapeno Sauce, and Louisiana Tomato Shrimp Stew.
From the kitchen garden to the kitchen table, Tomatoes spotlights the sights, smells, and tastes of this garden favorite.
