On Saturday, August 30 2-4PM we welcomed Miriam Rubin into our kitchen. Miriam demonstrated several recipes and signed copies of her cookbook, Tomatoes.
ABOUT THE BOOK
In Tomatoes, Miriam Rubin explores the tomato’s rich history and inspires home cooks to fully enjoy these summer fruits with fifty vibrant recipes as well as wisdom about how to choose tomatoes and which tomato is right for which dish. Tomatoes includes recipes that celebrate the down-home, inventive, and contemporary, such as Stand-over-the-Sink Tomato Sandwiches, Spiced Green Tomato Crumb Cake, Green Tomato and Pork Tenderloin Biscuit Pie, and Tomato and Golden Raisin Chutney. Miriam also offers useful cooking tips, lively lessons on history, cultivation, and preserving, and variations for year-round enjoyment of the tomato.
