I Say Tomato

Food & Wine Versatility

The Slow Food Movement and the days of yesteryear leave me wondering where I can get the perfect tomato. Could it be in my small, local market where the producers reflect generations of commitment to the land and devotion to the processes that yield the greatest achievements in taste? No, the baseball-glove skins of those little guys can’t be ignored with any amount of salt sprinkled on, but luckily Austin has Central Markets and Whole Foods to fill the food-shopping void.

Tasteless, soul-less, and loveless tomatoes live meaningless lives all over, but not in my kitchen. Everyday, a tomato is raised in-kind to meet my personal standards of yumdom. It’s like a University of Tomato process that most tomatoes only dream about attending. The xenophobic and rubber-skinned tomatoes of Central Texas needn’t bully the tasty foreign fellas into extinction. There is a tomato to suit every palette with the perfect tomato experience.
