One the highlights of the local food year is finally upon us — the arrival of gorgeous, vine-ripe heirloom tomatoes — an annual reminder of just how amazing tomatoes can actually be. Bred for taste, not for transport; sweet, juicy and bursting with flavour, these are the multicoloured beauties that have never seen the inside of a refrigerator.
This is a real case of less is more – you don’t need to do much to show off these beautiful and delicious garden jewels locally grown by Potager duKanada; just a gentle roasting with some fresh garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt & pepper. They’re then tossed with warm caserecce noodles, organic baby arugula, fresh mozzarella and basil from The Dep garden — it’s heaven on a plate. Served warm (not hot).
