Seasonal Tomatoes

As we’re in the height of the tomato season, today we are highlighting a wonderful starter which truly encapsulates the spirit of these long hot summer days we are currently enjoying.

It is a stunning combination of top quality buffalo mozzarella, gorgeous heritage tomatoes in every hue and peppery nasturtium leaves. The secret ingredient that brings this dish together is an intensely flavoured tomato essence. The very best cherry tomatoes are macerated with shallots, fennel and herbs for several hours and then placed in a muslin bag over a bowl in order to collect the golden juices. The intensity of flavour is sensational and elevates the humble tomato to something quite extraordinary.
