The weather was hot and steamy, but a steady stream of tomato pilgrims flowed to The Local Pig to taste the varieties that managed to ripen in time for the annual ritual.

A few die-hard tomato fans turned up last night at Jasper‘s for the annual tomato dinner on Friday evening. Mark your calendars and make your reservations early because, dear reader, it was an amazing feast not to be missed. Homemade mozzarella made fresh at the table. The highlight of the evening was a delicious tomato cake!

Inspired by the amazing tomato cake at Jasper's Linda made a tomato spice cake of her own. Yum!
