On Saturday, August 29, the kick-off of Forever Summer took place. Over 50 home growers gathered at Eindhoven’s Stadsakker for a tasting of over 80 different varieties of tomatoes. Tomato guru and chef Gabriela Zampfir cooked fantastic bites with tomatoes; gazpacho, Caprese salad with salsa verde made from weeds from the field and a delicious bruschetta. There was music and lots of atmosphere. We had a wonderful afternoon.
Many thanks to: Hilde van der Heijden for the organization, Willem Jan Renders for the hospitality at the Stadsakker Garden, the volunteers and everyone who helped with the growing of tomatoes.
