Announcing a Tomato Blog Event: Pomodoro!

Some of my blogger buddies and I have been offered review copies of a wonderfully edifying new book "Pomodoro!A History of the Tomato in Italy" by David Gentilcore (NY: Columbia University Press, 2010) and we are going to blog up our thoughts about the book and cook up something wonderful featuring our favorite love apples in an upcoming roundup.


If you would like to join us with this bookish food project feel free to do so by Monday, September 13th. All you need to do is buy or borrow this new book from your local library, blog a short book review and show us a recipe featuring the glories of the tomato. Let me know that you are planning to join in the power of Pomodoro! by leaving a comment below.

My garden tomatoes are just beginning to ripen up and we've enjoyed our first heavenly tomato sandwiches, tomato omelettes and tomato-cucumber salads. Wonderful! Last year was a tomato harvest bust since we had such a spate of cold, rainy weather in our neck of the woods. The tomato plants were all blighted (and Crispy, but not in a good way) before the few watery green tomatoes we did get could ripen, so this year's harvest is being especially savored. I'll be back with a new tomato recipe to tempt you all with soon.....
