Summer is a period which brings along many culinary delights, but one of the undisputed stars of the season is the tomato.
This versatile vegetable is an essential ingredient of Mediterranean cuisine, especially during the warmer months. Tomato season inspires a variety of fresh and delicious dishes that highlight the unique flavours of this time of year.
Tomato time: a rainbow of varieties
Summer is a time of abundance for tomatoes, with an impressive array of colours, sizes and flavours to delight the senses. From small cherry and grape tomatoes to large, fleshy Raf tomatoes, all tomato varieties have something special to offer.
The essence of summer is perfectly captured in the fresh, juicy flavour of a ripe tomato. Seasonal tomatoes have a natural sweetness that is difficult to replicate at other times of the year. At Mas de Torrent we believe in the importance of seasonal produce, which is why in our restaurants we use the freshest ingredients according to their season, including tomatoes.
The best tomato dishes in the summertime
Summer invites a variety of fresh dishes that highlight the flavour and texture of tomatoes. From caprese salads with fresh tomato slices and mozzarella, homemade tomato sauces, and the traditional gazpacho and salmorejo, tomatoes are at the heart of many summer recipes in Mediterranean cuisine.
Summer is a wonderful opportunity to get all the benefits of tomatoes with these delicious dishes, which are not only healthy but also refreshing and help to beat the heat.
