The good, the red and the ugly could well be a description of the occupants of a tour bus leaving Torremolinos after a good cooking on the beach during the holiday season. Happily, in this case, it relates to the arrival of good local tomatoes. Tomatoes with wonderful shape, colour and, above all, taste. These tomatoes are not a constructed of a thin shell filled with liquid and seeds – they cut like meat, giving meaning to the name “coeur de boeuf”. The small stall, L’Oasis, on the road to La Rochelle is now open, and will remain so until the end to September. The counter is already packed with boxes of the best tomatoes, melons, peaches and tiny, flat pêches de vigne, not forgetting wonderful potatoes, garlic, shallots and the freshest, most fondant “salades”. I made a simple pizza with mozzarella, anchovies, capers and one of the new, heroic tomatoes – 3 of them weighed more than a kilo.
