Fast forward to today and you will find me completely smitten with this delectable treat. My favorite version is the Italian way — in the form of a bruschetta topping (tomatoes, garlic, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper), heaped over toasted baguette slices or the same concoction tossed with unruly perciatelli pasta. And, of course, Caprese or burrata salads.
Living in California has afforded many opportunities to try different varieties from the local farmers' markets. It's so much fun to sift through the selection. Heirloom tomatoes are such an odd-looking lot. –misshapen and multi-colored, they are definitely not the bland, super-market reds that many people know as "tomatoes."
You know? That "everything's right with the world" kind of feeling? That's a lot of power packed in one little fruit.
