Pork and Eggplant Soup with Tomato and Shiso

This may be a soup for Fall, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still use Summer’s bounty.

Heirloom Tomato Tasting at the House of Annie

It may not have been as expansive (or expensive) as TomatoFest, but we managed to have our own heirloom tomato tasting, featuring tomatoes grown right in our backyard.  Our guests were Cooking For Engineers‘ creator Michael Chu, and his wife Tina.  What did they think of our tomatoes?

Getting Buzzed at TomatoFest, Part 2

In our first post on getting buzzed at TomatoFest in Carmel Valley, we talked about the amazing foods and drinks we experienced in the various Chef and Wine Tents.  But that was just the festival part of TomatoFest. Today, I want to talk about the whole reason there is a TomatoFest, the tomatoes.  It’s why I really wanted to go to TomatoFest in the first place, ever since I found out about it.
