Publishers Weekly
Expanding on territory covered in his 2004 The Tomato Festival Cookbook, author Davis-Hollander gives readers another 150 applications for one of America's most popular produce (referred to most often, in this volume, as a vegetable). Unlike in his previous work, cooks aren't restricted to heirloom varieties, but (with a few exceptions) can use whatever they have on hand to craft toothsome dishes like Scallops with Asian Noodle Salad and Tomato Ginger Jam, the Spanish salsa Pipirrana, or the traditional Native American dish Lamb-Stuffed Green Chiles with Fresh Tomato Puree. Also included are standards like the humble BLT, Bloody Mary, pizza, and Huevos Rancheros. Avoiding a tendency toward novelty uses fro the versatile veggie, Davis stays on track with submissions from renowned chefs like Gary Danko (Roast Lobster with Tomato, Corn, and Fines Herbes) and Rick Bayless (Essential Quick-Cooked Tomato-Chipotle Sauce), as well as older ideas such as Tomatoes à la Indienne, a velvety curry-like dish based on a 1909 recipe. Liberally peppered with lore, this will be an oft-consulted resource for tomato lovers come summer. Color photos and illus.

Ah! There's nothing like a tomato picked fresh from the garden in summertime! I have tomato plants upon tomato plants, so was looking for ideas for more than just salad or juice. This cookbook fulfills that easily. I started with Marinara Sauce. I've made many different sauces in my time, and this one is right up there with them. Some may turn up their nose at the thought of anchovies, but you don't really taste a heavy anchovy flavor, they just add an extra dimension to the flavor. I liked the Italian-Style Fresh Tomato Sauce recipe as well. Next, I want to try the Tomato and Meat Sauce for Pasta. There are fun recipes to try such as Egg in a Tomato Nest, Tomato Couscous Salad, Tomato Basil Quiche (up next for me!), as well as classic favorites such as Eggplant Parmigiana, Fried Green Tomatoes, Cream of Tomato Soup and more. I'm especially excited to try the Heirloom Tomato and Toasted Garlic Gratin. I just have to wait for some more of my Cherokee Purples to ripen! If you love tomatoes or are searching desperately for a way to use up the bounty of tomatoes from your garden, this would be a great cookbook for you! Easy to follow recipes, and an abundance of ideas pack this cookbook. I don't think you'll be disappointed. I received a copy of this cookbook from Storey Publishing for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
