Oh, what to do with Lon’s delicious tomatoes! The first rule with fresh fruits and veggies is to start with the best and don’t mess ’em up. So, chopped tomatoes, garlic, a handful of parsley and a dash of olive oil made a perfect pasta topping for dinner tonight. Yum.
Several years back, there was a local food column called “Cooking from the Hip” by a young, relative unknown chef, Cat Cora. She’d give general guidance on how to prepare a dish without going the traditional recipe route. I loved it, and have continued that tradition. These days she is cooking from the hip in high pressure 60 minute challenges on Food Network’s Iron Chef. Go Cat!
