Tomato bread against the tomato glut

August 19th, 2018 | bread & pastries

The other day we were invited for a barbecue with dear friends. They served a super-tasty tomato bread. As a matter of course, I immediately asked for the recipe, of course! The bread was made in a Thermomix food processor. I do not own such a processor. Of course, the recipe also works without the device, and quite sensually with your hands in the dough.

Tomato bread against the tomato glut

Since I had received an incredible number of tomatoes from the greenhouse from other friends, I decided to use twice the amount of dough to process the beautiful, red, ripe fruit. The result was a really BIG bread, super-fluffy, super-juicy, super-delicious.

I had replaced about one third of the flour with common wheat flour Type 00, which made it particularly supple and fine-pored.

This bread tastes best only with butter and some salt! You can serve it as well with my eggplant dip or with wild garlic aioli.

Shore leave Venice

The early bird catches the Venetian worm. Between 6 and 10 am, the lagoon city shows up the most beautiful – before the endless tourist-lindworm rolls over the Rialto Bridge and overflows the famous St. Mark’s Square. “Early in the morning and late in the evening, you can enjoy Venice’s morbid charm and unique atmosphere the best,” the captain recommends.
