The week, I read an article in the new March 2009 Gourmet Magazine by Barry Estabrook that absolutely needed to be passed on the USA food-lovers that read my blog. The article is also available on-line, and it is linked below.
I seldom purchase tomatoes during the winter months, but there are those few times I wanted to add the color to food still life that I was photographing or to a holiday platter that I have put one or two tomatoes in my market basket.
After reading this article, I will be ever so much more thoughtful about where I shop and what I choose when I need to purchase off-season, non locally grown produce. Please take the time to click over to Gourmet Magazine on-line and read this article.
Thank you all very much in advance.
The articel begins, “If you have eaten a tomato this winter, chances are very good that it was picked by a person who lives in virtual slavery.”
