Heirloom Cafe @heirloomcafe | I am a home cook, we eat our family meals and gather with friends around our table to take a dish to join friends at their home. This week has been fun out and about in San Francisco, gathering inspiration for summer menus from my favorites. When celebrating a friend, Heirloom was my first choice. We split a nice Summer menu. (best I can remember)
.
*Butter Lettuce with Pluots, Black Grapes, Walnuts, Ricotta Salata *Bacon Onion Tart
*Corn Bisque with Crispy Shallots
*Seared Salmon over Potato + Tomato in cream sauce
*English Peas with Mint
*Alfagato .
I am further inspired for the farmers market tomorrow. .

It's all about the sauce | These Early Girls from @earlygirlfarm called for Barely Cooked Tomato Sauce that I learned from an Italian Mama in Puglia. The light treatment brings out the flavor in these gorgeous gems.

Obsession | Last night's tomato crostata with honey-thyme glaze, recipe by @clarkbar, was a bit more wabi-sabi. Of course this was the night I was serving it to my friend visiting from Rome. No matter, the less-than perfect crust using rosemary instead of thyme, was about sitting around the table, sharing a good meal, catching up on our lives parted by continents and ocean. It was perfect!

Canning Season | Its time to order cases of tomatoes and seal that taste of Summer in a jar for the Winter (Slide to see photos of canning over the years; in my renovated kitchen, my friend's kitchen, in my old kitchen with our cute Wedgwood stove!) I started by peeling Early Girls but have switched to quartering and stuffing San Marzano variety. With a fiend you can do 100 lbs in a day, visiting and sipping tea along the way. I can using the boiling water bath method. .

Roasting tomatoes happens at the end of the week in our home, using up all leftover tomatoes before farmer's market day! The sugars are pulled forward and adds perfect flavor and texture to any dish. We add them to tartines, pasta, quinoa bowls, soups and salads. Follow #wesaytomatoes to be further inspired!
