The concept of only wanting to order organic, local bread food is actually a funny thing, especially if people don’t cook themselves – it demands for a huge amount of trust. A trust in the restaurant, deli or what not. And people who swear to do so, are really engaged and dedicated (and loud-spoken) about eating as they do. I find it hard believing that these personas cook much themselves, or know the different sorts of greens etc. they are eating. Some kids don’t even know what an avocado is or how a beet looks. This made me want to share and maybe educate people in what a simple vegetable is and how many sorts there are to it.
I my self seldom look for a certain tomato sort when I shop for veggies – I mostly go for the best for the lowest price, or the ones I know taste amazing.
Tomatoes are part of dinners all over the world – from a California to France to Tokyo and Bangkok (maybe not the Arctics), so we should know a bit about them.
NeedSupply just brought a very nice article on what the different tomato sorts are, and what you can use them for.
Read it here.
And next time, try going to the store and buy a tomato that’s a different color or shape than you’re used to. It won’t kill you.
