We've had a few ingredient focused dinners, and now it's time to pay respect to tomatoes! We'll be making a wonderful tomato caprese, fried green tomatoes with green beans and almond feta, a tomato gazpacho with lightly pickled cucumber and nasturtium, Truffled White Bean Phyllo Pastry, with Heirloom Tomato and Blue Cheese Fondue, and for dessert, we'll make a tomato ice cream to serve with strawberry shortcake!

Menu detail

Tomato Caprese
Ripe, seasoned heirloom tomatoes, layered with fresh basil from our garden, as well as our homemade cashew mozzarella. Drizzled with grassy arbequina olive oil, a balsamic vinegar reduction, and dusted with course maldon salt.
Fried Green Tomatoes, Fermented Green Beans, Whipped Almond Feta
Small Plate
Fried green tomatoes are a fantastic way to enjoy under-ripe tomatoes, and we'll pair it with whipped almond ricotta, fermented green beans, oregano, and mint from our garden.
Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho
Small Plate
We'll make a fantastic, classic, chilled gazpacho and serve it with some lightly pickled cucumber relish and nasturtium.
Truffled White Bean Phyllo Pastry, Heirloom Tomato, Blue Cheese Fondue
Phyllo pastry filled with White Bean, Roasted Kohlrabi & Bell Pepper, and Truffled Mashed Potato, served with Sweetcorn Fritters, Heirloom Tomato & Okra, with a Blue Cheese Fondue Sauce
Strawberry Shortcake with Sweet Cashew Whip and Tomato Ice Cream
I totally miss strawberry shortcake, and haven't had it for years. How many of you know tomato is a fruit? A fruit that lends itself very well to making ice cream which we'll feature with this dish
