Tomato Time?

“You know, when you get your first asparagus, or your first acorn squash, or your first really good tomato of the season, those are the moments that define the cook’s year. I get more excited by that than anything else. “

Iron Chef Mario Batali should know. I’m still waiting for that defining moment. Sure we’ve picked a couple sungolds off our vines so far but what I want is a caprese-worthy basket full of the sun-riped red jewels. Botanically speaking, the tomato is a fruit; in the culinary world, it’s used as a vegetable. However, it’s classified, I’m ready!
