Tomato: A Fresh-from-the-Vine Cookbook


by Lawrence Davis-Hollander

Americans are hungry tomato eaters. Home cooks will find 'Tomato: A Fresh-from-the-Vine Cookbook' a focused collection of recipes that celebrate height-of-the-season flavor. From cooking with heirloom tomatoes to preserving the harvest, author Lawrence Davis-Hollander brings together 150 recipes from the enormous world of the culinary tomato. 'Tomato' isn't just for those who have a garden or grow tomatoes in containers; a love of tomatoes is the only requirement.

'Tomato' features noted chef contributors and their savory recipes such as:

~ Daniel Boulud's Cafe, Heirloom Tomato and Goat Cheese Salad.
~Jody Adams' Spaghetti with Slow-Roasted Tomatoes, Basil, and Parmesan Cheese.
~Alice Water's Chez Panisse Restaurant and Cafe, Gazpacho.
~Nora Pouillon of Nora's and Asia Nora's in Washington, D.C., Striped Bass with Roasted Tomatoes with Caper Sauce.
~Nell Newman, daughter of Paul and Joanne Woodward, and founder of the Newman's Own Organics, Organic Tomatoes and Basil with Fusilli.
~Floyd Cardoz's Spiced Tomato Salad of Tabla fame.

The versatility of the tomato in cooking is phenomenal. From soup to bread, from entree to dessert, the tomato is enjoyed in every phase of the meal, and 'Tomato' offers many delicious and unique recipes.  Tomato also includes recipes for preserving tomatoes in sauces, condiments, and chutneys, and advice from chef contributors, seed savers, and farmers. Tomato is for anyone who eats tomatoes, grows tomatoes, cooks with them, and spends long winter months thinking about them.
