Home Wine Kitchen's Cassy Vires Interviewed on National Public Radio
Vires talked with Scott Simon about tomatoes on Saturday morning.
Simon, host of Weekend Edition Saturday, called Vires to talk about tomatoes Saturday morning.
"We use baby heirloom tomatoes, set them in a basil aspic and then slice them, and it creates a really beautiful, fresh bite of summer," Vires says. "My brother actually called it the 'savory tomato jello.' "
Vires' tomato terrine is a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds. "There's so many different colors of those heirloom tomatoes," she says. "It's a really striking dish."
During the month July, a portion of the proceeds from the tomato terrine is going to Operation Food Search.
The text of the interview, as well as a link to hear the actual conversation is on NPR's website. By the way, Vires does a great job in the interview; it's worth a listen.
