Tomatoes, Tomatoes and More Tomatoes

Tomatoes and Rosé

Nothing gets the cook in me tingling like tomato season.  Since I don’t grow my own yet, I always depend on the kind donations of friends and colleagues, and this year is no exception.  Thanks to a few generous folks I’ve been making salsa, pico de gallo, pasta sauce and of course, the classic tomato salad.

Absolutely nothing goes better with fresh tomatoes than a good rosé.  My clear favorite this year was the Gustav Lorentz Rosé of Pinot Noir from Alsace.  It’s delicate but full of personality, and with a great tomato salad makes for a fantastic Sunday afternoon.

I’m enjoying it all now before it’s gone in the blink of a Chicago eye…..
