I think there should be a wintertime law against those tasteless, textureless orbs they call tomatoes in the supermarket. In no way do they resemble those heavenly bursts of flavour we get from our own gardens or the farmers’ markets in late August. Oh how I dream of garden tomatoes. Do a little dreaming of your own with inspiration from a lovely book called The Heirloom Tomato by Amy Goldman. The photography is top drawer and the recipes will certainly whet your appetite for a late summer harvest. About $38 at all major bookstores.
