We've had a few ingredient focused dinners, and it's high time that we pay respect to tomatoes. We'll be making a wonderful tomato caprese, fried green tomatoes with fermented green beans and whipped almond feta, a tomato gazpacho with fermented cucumber, a seared polenta cake with smoked tomato brodo, borlotti beans, roasted garlic, and seared summer squash, and for dessert, we'll make a tomato ice cream to serve with a sweet cornbread.
