The Heirloom Tomato Cookbook Jan. 13 2007
By Lana L. Stabio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read cookbooks like many people read magazines: cover to cover. The Heirloom Tomato Cookbook offers not only delicious, yet simple, recipes with a suggestion for a wine paring, but also a variety of other tomato topics that range from how to's of saving seeds, drying, and cultivating of favorite heirlooms. Your gardener, chef, and tomato lover will appreciate the beautiful illustrations as well.

Pretty pictures, bad-to-average recipes Oct. 2 2010
By Eva Gerald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Unlike most of the other reviewers of this book, I actually made some of the recipes. The tomato bisque was thin and bland, tasting mostly of onion and watery cream with just a hint of tomato flavor. I expect that ripe heirloom tomatoes of "any" variety (I used brandywine, pineapple, and black zebras) may be too soggy, and the soup really suffered. The same thing happened when I made the brandywine tomato sauce -- the tomatoes disintegrated into nothing, leaving me with a lot of specks of skin and a watery sauce. It would have been helpful if the recipes had suggested several varieties that would work best, something the author did only a few times.

The crab cakes were okay but would have been quite bland if I hadn't added more seasonings than the prescribed salt and pepper, and it's a good thing I did because the tomato-corn relish that accompanied it was quite unremarkable and would not have made up for the lack of seasoning in the crab cakes and the citrus aioli also didn't add much to the cakes other than a citrus-y bite.

Too many "recipes" merely involve cutting up tomatoes and other fruits/vegetables, seasoning them, and adding a commonplace dressing. Most people could figure that out on their own; why was recipe space wasted on it? And do you really need a cookbook to tell you how to make a BLT just because you're using heirlooms?

There are, however, informative sections on common heirloom varieties and their cultivation along with lots of pretty pictures, so I gave it two stars for that.

Used it daily this summer Nov. 27 2008
By Brandywine girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book at Crate and Barrel while on vacation and bought it, since I grow alot of different kinds of tomatoes. I love this book so much that I'm here shopping for it for friends as gifts. What I esp. like is that many of the recipes are good as vegetarian entrees. Also, I like to collect cookbooks on one topic, so it was a good addition to my collection. And I did follow the procedures for saving heirloom seeds. So, I'm all set for next summer's growing season, and I can't wait!
