As a foodie-destination spot in the Napa Valley, The Inn On First takes great pride in obtaining fresh and organic ingredients wherever we can. So, when our friend and contractor, Rick Leonard, invited us over to a friend’s house (Tony) to pick tomatoes, we jumped at the chance.
Fragrant as you picked them off the vine, some of them opening upon touch, begging to be eaten right away. We did! Sugar sweet, like candy. Cherry tomatoes, early girls, mortgage busters, and more. With more on the way she (Tony) made it clear we were welcome to return again.
So in the next few weeks expect to see them on the menu: from creamy, roasted tomato soup with grilled cheese croutons, to focaccia stuffed with summer tomatoes and mozzarella.
