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!
