Farmer’s Market Fun

Wednesdays are my favorite day of the week. Why you ask?

It is the day that two great things occur in L.A. on a weekly basis:

1) The Santa Monica Farmer’s Market is open

2) The Food section of the LA Times comes out

This week it is as if the Times spoke with the farmers at the Farmer’s Market about what they should feature. The main story this week is about Heirloom Tomatoes. A “fruit” that is¬†absolutely¬†phenomenal. As the sun rose over L.A. I delved into the food section and absorbed its contents. Fast forward a few hours and I am amidst the hustle and bustle of the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market. Practically every stall is overflowing with Heirloom Tomatoes! I bought at least 5 different breeds this morning and am looking forward to enjoying them this week.

Heirlooms

After leaving Tomato Land I started to think…is there a way to use tomatoes in a dessert setting? Le Pain Quotidien offers a delectable tart that combines Ricotta, roasted Figs, Honey, fresh black Pepper and diced Tomatoes on a slice or Rye. Sounds bizarre, but trust me – it’s delightful!

Ricotta Tartine

So I am currently brainstorming ways to use tomatoes in desserts. Sounds odd? That’s what I love – allowing us to redefine what dessert means to us.

Stay tuned to see what I come up with!
