Tomato: A Fresh-from-the-Vine Cookbook based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
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.
