Description - Hot Tomatoes by Angelo McDonnell

A native of South America, the tomato comes in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, colours, textures, and flavors -- from the tangy green zebra to the sweet Japanese momotaro to the intense pineapple heirloom. In Hot Tomatoes, acclaimed chef Angelo McDonnell reintroduces the tomato to chefs looking for innovative ways to integrate the much-loved fruit/vegetable into elegant, flavourful dishes. Among the forty-seven feats of creativity featured in Hot Tomatoes are dazzling constructions like Lamb Chop with Dried Tomato Crust on Balsamic Tomatoes and Valencia Orange Tomato Ravioli with Lobster Sage and Tomato Stew. McDonnell -- clearly in love with the freedom the multifaceted tomato affords -- also comes up with exciting treats like the Bloody Mary Tomato, Chilled Ox Heart Tomato Martini, and Home-made Ketchup. Colour photography brings each mouth-watering recipe to vibrant life and illustrates McDonnell's flair for sophisticated presentation of dishes. The book also includes: a colourful pictorial index of tomato varieties; an index of short component recipes; descriptions of some less familiar ingredients. This is a bold cookbook that's beautiful enough to be a coffee table book.
