Worldly Tomatoes

In Belgium they say "tomaat," in France "olivette," in India "tamaatar," and in Spain "tomate." The word "tomato" has as much diversity as the fruit's use in recipes, from salads to soups to casseroles to drinks and unique concoctions have been created by cultures throughout the world, bringing together tomato-lovers from near and far.

Belgium has a fresh and delicious tomato salad, France boasts a creamy tomato mousse and India spices things up with a tomato curry. Also check out this tasty recipe for a Spanish salmorejo or this American tomato pudding and tomato paella. We think any of our tomatoes from romas, to grapes to UGLYRIPEs® would be oh-so-appetizing paired with these recipes!

In French, olivette is used for plum tomatoes and tomate is for the generic variety.
