Tomato soup is delicious any time of year. I find it to be both hearty and refreshing. My favorite tomatoes are Italian; I’m a local food advocate, but I bend the rules when it comes to tomatoes…there is a perfection to the Italian tomato. I prefer the San Marzano fruit, however any “Made in Italy” tomato will do. This staple of Italian cuisine is picked from the vine at the peak of ripeness and therefore packed full of sunshine, a touch sweeter than all other tomatoes.

Buon Appetito!
