I really do believe that the Isle of Wight Tomatoes are THE best tomatoes grown in our county of Hampshire, but also the UK.
These famous tomatoes will be a hero veg in our menu prepared by Deborah Durrant, the international chef who has carved a prolific career as plant based raw food chef catering to high end Spas, celebrities but also sharing her knowledge with aspiring raw food chefs with her culinary academy.
The Tomato Stall, based in the Arreton Valley on the island, was established in 2007, and takes advantage of the sunnier climate enjoyed on the Isle of Wight. The Tomato Stall grows a range of conventional varieties as well as heritage tomatoes and are organically grown using sustainable growing methods and natural predators for pest control.
They’ve also developed an exciting range of tomato based products such a traditional tomato juice and passata, to more unusual products such as an oak smoked tomato balsamic, tomato and chilli jam and even a tomato sea salt!
Isle of Wight tomatoes are going to be quite a star on the menu for the pop up event, being used in a carpaccio of tomatoes with peppered strawberries, edible flowers and wasabi, served with a tomato consommé. An amazing combination of flavours!
There are just a few places left on this amazing food event taking place next week.
