Roasted tomatoes are just better, well for some dishes that is. It lends smokey, warm notes to any dish and warm or cold it is delicious.

Roasted tomatoes form a good base for  pasta sauces, relishes and toppings for burgers and a stuffed roasted tomato is the perfect side dish for  a good steak. In my house, roasted tomatoes form an essential part of a good farmhouse breakfast at my home and dad has very specific instructions on how to do it – a little sugar, a little salt and balsamic vinegar are all key ingredients.

The vegetable sections of our supermarkets are stocked to the brim with different size and colored tomatoes. I LOVE the vine tomatoes. Not only are they sweet and fragrant to eat, but they do make a damn good picture too. No styling required, nature’s perfection!

These little tartlets will make a show stopper starter for your New Year’s Eve party. It is so simple to make, yet it looks beautiful on a plate and almost all of it can be prepared in advance. In fact there is very little to prepare, just the thing you need to ease into the new year.
