Last year we attended a charming heirloom tomato tasting in the oak tree-shaded garden of a picturesque farmhouse at Picchetti Winery in Cupertino. It was a picture-perfect Indian summer afternoon, with the added bonus of tasting a rainbow of delicious, organic heirloom tomatoes, olive oil and inspired appetizers.
TomatoBash is back this Saturday, September 24 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. – registration details here.
It doesn’t hurt that you can pick up a bottle of wine in the tasting room and bring it over to the garden – just keep an eye out for wandering peacocks on the property!
We are getting gorgeous heirloom tomatoes from Farm Fresh to You, so I worked them into our breakfast this morning. Note: make sure the tomato is on the sweeter side, and don’t forget to butter your toast! I also lightly salted the fresh cut tomatoes and eggs while cooking.
After you’ve drained the noodles, toss in the canned tuna in the same pot
(cooks it slightly); finish with chopped tomatoes, olive oil and salt/pepper.
