More Tomatoes

More Tomatoes

It doesn’t get any fresher than this!  Jim and Jenny Schiavo, owners of The Continental Fitchburg  are growing their own tomatoes, peppers and basil in a garden right behind the restaurant.  The Continental also features a special summer menu of home-grown tomato specials, including bruschetta, panzanella and a polenta-crusted pizza.

This past weekend I made a wonderful heirloom tomato salad with Hook’s blue cheese (pictured) that I highly recommend.  I was inspired by the recipe in From Emeril’s Kitchen Cookbook which can be found here.

About This Blog

Dan CurdI found my interest in writing by accident. My training and first job was as a graphic designer. Unemployed, the only employment I could find in advertising at that time was as a copywriter. Somehow, I convinced Richard Newman & Associates to hire me. Later I learned they were desperate. Madison has been my home off and on since 1957 (nonstop for the past 31 years). I write about food, which I love. – Dan Curd
