Livres de Claire Thomson
Winner of Delicious magazine’s Book of the Year award (2022)
Vibrant, bright and bursting with flavour, this is the definitive guide to the much-loved tomato.
Where would we be without the tomato? From South America, on through much of Europe, Northern Africa and Southern Asia, almost every culture and cuisine has found ways of making tomatoes their own. Fresh and also tinned, tomatoes have proved themselves to be an endlessly versatile ingredient, much loved by all. In Tomato, best-selling author and professional chef Claire Thomson offers up her best 80 recipes with tomatoes as star of the show.
From Burnt tomato salsa and Peach, tomato & feta salad, to Tomato beignets, Crab & tomato tart, and Lamb, tomato & black olive ragu, the gorgeous recipes will satisfy and delight. Celebrating juicy, seasonal produce at the height of tomato season, there are also dishes that work just as well (or better) with tinned tomatoes during the colder months, ensuring year-round feasting.
A fascinating cookbook for when you’re stuck with a glut, or simply if you want to explore new flavours and techniques, Tomato is a colourful and dynamic source of kitchen inspiration.

Faced with the daily challenge of what to cook for her three young children, chef and mum Claire Thomson made it her mission to inspire parents stuck in a teatime rut.
