Was just looking online for burrata, but the only place I could find that wasn't selling what looked like industrial stuff only delivered to a selection of London postcodes.Oh and btw, hardly an Independent but if you haven’t tried it, the burrata from M&S massively exceeds expectations
This thread always inspires (costs) me so much.
A 50 mile round trip to a listed “Tomato Stall” supplier....
All looks excellent.My apologies for the gratuitous food porn but the combination of Tomato Stall Heritage tomatoes, pan fried halibut from Birmingham fish market, crushed new potatoes and fried padron peppers from Riverford washed down with a delightful white burgundy from TWS was rather special all augmented by Wiltshire truffles, summer black trufflesView attachment 14060View attachment 14061
Just to update,
Just sliced some Tomato Stall tomatoes for a little salad tonight. Just a selection of what was in the box that came earlier this week.
That's odd. All the Tomato Stall toms I've had have been very ripe and tasty.Just to update,
These looked great but the flavour was decent supermarket standard sadly not in the league of the tomatoes that were in my local "Polish Shop" all season last year at a third of the price.
I have not checked back at the PS re this year's crop as it is a Zero social distance experience.
Andrew,That's odd. All the Tomato Stall toms I've had have been very ripe and tasty.
Wonder if yours had spent too long in a fridge at some point.
Thom,I was under the impression that the idea that tomatoes should never go into the refrigerator was a bit of a myth; it will certainly vastly slow the ripening process but they will come back to life at room temperature. How to Store Tomatoes (and Whether to Refrigerate Them) though while I am a great admirer of Serious Eats it is sometimes clear that produce over there is so different to what we get that their conclusions are not always useful here.
