Yup, there are still tomatoes in New England, so I’ve been making pizza, sauce, soup, and more. Coming next week: a brilliant roasted heirloom tomato salad with gorgonzola and mustard greens, which also included the green and purple basil pictured here. This herb is so pretty with its mottled leaves and delicate flowers that it warranted its very own post.
Lovely, isn’t it?
On a non-basil-related note, if you’re in Beantown be sure to check out the Boston Local Food Festival this weekend. The festivities begin with tonight’s annual brewfest featuring a bevy of craft beers, ales, and ciders and continue with Sunday’s all-day event with a full program of food and fun. I’ll be doing a cooking demo at noon so come on down if you’re around!
