Homegrown and/or farmers market tomatoes are the best- flavourful, rich, bursting with juicy tomato-y goodness. Today I picked the biggest tomato in my garden. I had been saving it to enter into the Ponsonby News vegetable competition this Sunday but I was afraid it would be overripe by then. After a little taste, I realised that the tomato was so sweet and flavourful I needed to find a simple recipe in which all that flavour could shine through. This recipe by David Lebovitz really does the trick.
1 small shallot
