Two large heirloom tomatoes

Heirloom Tomato: From Garden to Table

by Victor Schrager Photographer and Amy Goldman Author

If all you see when looking at a tomato is just another piece of produce, then this book will open your eyes to the secrets hiding within that ripe and juicy skin. It's no exaggeration to say that author Amy Goldman is a world-renowned vegetable gardener, a skill she uses when crafting the fifty-five irresistible recipes found within this love letter to heirloom tomatoes. Not limited to recipes alone, Goldman begins by teaching readers how they themselves can grow their own heirloom tomatoes. From the wine tasting sweet pea currant, to the firm but juicy purple calabash, Goldman breaks down the intricate flavors of each tomato, while also imparting her own personal wisdom and experiences. Accompanied by gorgeous images from photographer Victor Schrager, whose photos have appeared in the MOMA along with being published in the New York Times Magazine and Bon Appetit to name a few, this book expertly defines one of the few vegetables that deserves an entire book to itself.
