A little anticlimactic

Tomatoes and Olives

Tomatoes and Kalamata Olives, Santorini, Greece.

Every year around this time one of my favourite things is field tomatoes. So fresh. So delicious. And combined with bacon on a sandwich … one of the greatest things.

However, this year is a little different. I recently returned from a three-week vacation across Greece and Turkey and here I discovered some of the best tomatoes I had ever eaten. Every morning breakfast comprised of fresh tomatoes, cheese, olives, bread and coffee/tea, but it really was the tomatoes that stole the show. And now? Well, my old friend the field tomato, although still excellent, leaves me longing to go back. Pity.

The above photo? Giant cherry tomatoes from the Greek island of Santorini and some kalamata olives. A wonderful combination with a glass of wine and that island’s beautiful sunsets.
