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; just a gentle roasting with some fresh garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt & pepper. They’re then tossed with warm linguini noodles (or fresh zucchini noodles), organic baby arugula and fresh basil from The Dep garden. Top with shaved crotonese (a hard, salty sheep’s cheese), and it’s heaven on a plate. Served warm (not hot).

We’ll also have fresh pie from the wood ovens at Dufferin Grove!
