This past weekend marked the annual ode to the tomato at Manresa in Los Gatos known as the Tomato Modernista dinners. On Saturday and Sunday, James Beard Award-winning chef David Kinch and pastry chef Belinda Leong prepared an eight-course menu in which some of the 60 varieties of heirloom tomatoes grown this summer by Love Apple Farms were incorporated in each course. Grub Street had the pleasure of dining on Sunday, and it became impossible to count how many varieties were covered in each course (we suspect that the final 30 or so were all thrown into the jus in course six). But nevertheless, it was an eye-opening meal in terms of the variety of flavors among these juicy summer fruits. Behold, our slideshow.
