There are several varieties, this year: The usual plum but also a mystery variety of heritage tomatoes that include delicious purple tomatoes – excellent for gazpacho and salsa – weird forked tomatoes and a plum, with what looks like flames on the side – and as everybody knows, flames make everything much cooler.
Beginning with breakfast sandwiches, tomatoes make a fine addition. The first is a B.F.L.T.
That’s a bagel, facon, lettuce and tomato. Sandwich.
Served with a spicy dilled pickle – niice.
The next was created in a secret test chamber at Black Mesa:
Fauxy, pickle, lettuce and tomato, on naan. Quite excellent.
Also, the cheese is possibly good – it always takes a while to form an opinion – but as I was making it, Will was eating it by the spoonful and he cleaned out the food processor after the fact.
So far, not bad melted on a biscuit nor as a (at least) thin slice on a tomato sandwich.
Weird, suddenly I feel like Ari should make some sort of tomato horror flick…
