Roasted paragon tomato filled with sea scallops; topped with shrimp

We helped to put on another Tomato Tasting. This time Slow Foods Upstate led the way and we were there to help with some design work for the menus and tasting cards.

The event was held at Ristorante Bergamo where Chef Nello put together an amazing five course dinner menu.

The Menu

Course 1

Caprese salad with fresh mozzarella, basil and Cherokee purple-bruschetta with striped German.

Course 2

Roasted polenta squares topped with gold cherry tomatoes sauce, in house cured crispy pancetta and shaved Cacio Cavallo.

Course 3

Rigatoni with San Marzano tomatoes sauce with basil and Parmiggiano Reggiano cheese.

Course 4

Roasted Paragon tomatoes (whole) filled with sea scallops, topped with shrimp.

Course 5

Golden Rave tomato mousse topped with Thai Pink jam served in genoise mini cake.

The sold event was really well received and we hope to team up with Slow Foods Upstate for more tastings in the future.
