my favorite summer meal

August 25, 2011

we’ve had some delicious food this summer, eaten at some spiffy restaurants, but so far nothing beats this 5-ingredient masterpiece.

tomatoes, candy sweet, fresh from my dad’s garden.

aromatic basil snipped directly from my patio pot.

the creamiest burrata in town.

and a 25-year-old aged balsamic, so honey-thick, its olive oil sibling is left unused.

put them on plate, add a couple of toast points, and voilà! you have the best tasting meal, in my opinion, of the summer.

bon appétit m’loves.

  • Tomatoes are my favorite food on the planet (besides coffee, which counts as it's own food group to me…). That looks amazing.

  • Get in my belly!

  • Funny you posted that – we've been eating it all summer. Also, for the first time in 15 years of living in LA – I finally had good peaches. I've been cutting up peaches left and right and combining it with heirloom tomatoes, basil, burrata and a little proscuitto or grilling the peaches and making a plate of arugala, burrata and proscuitto. Looks delish! Love tomatoes fresh from the garden. My new neighbors that moved in have a restaurant down your way Park Avenue and Il Garage in Stanton Beach – all fresh ingredients right from their garden. I get the benefit of fresh tomatoes. Stop in.

  • My favorite, yum! And your dad's tomatoes look amazing! I may have to make this for dinner tonight!

  • Now that looks delicious. The only thing I would do different is make some whole wheat pizza dough and create some magic on the grill.

  • Im hunting down that balsamic ~ thick like syrup leaves me weak in the knees.
