Here is a little “Tomato 101” video class on tomatoes ~ specifically, canned San Marzano tomatoes, strained tomatoes (featuring the Pomi brand, my favorite), and tomato paste. Why a video on these? Well, the recipes in my book Beyond the Pasta and on this blog use some of these tomato products and people have been asking me to explain what they are and why I like them. So ~ watch the video and find out!
I hope this has answered some of your questions about San Marzano canned tomatoes, strained tomatoes, and tomato paste. Please leave me comments or continue to ask me questions, I really enjoy having a dialogue with you. I truly want to encourage you to cook, bring your family to the table and change a life one meal at a time!
And, as a bonus, here is a sneak peak into Nonna’s cupboard in Italy to see what tomato products she had:
Buon Appetito~ bring your family to the table and change a life one meal at a time!
My copy of your book arrived in the mail yesterday and with a quick glance I know I am going to enjoy it. It will be a couple of months at least before I get to review it though Mark as I want to read and review it for the Italy in Books Challenge I am taking part in.
Excellente! Sono felice che lo ha ricevuto. Yikes, I hope I wrote that correctly! Looking forward to your thoughts once you get through it. I hope you’ll enjoy it, especially since you are living almost exactly where I was. Brava! Anche, sono geloso molto.
