Every week on the BCS blog, we feature one of our mongers with a product they love.
This week, Ben Weger is in the hot seat.
La Valle San Marzano D.O.P. tomatoes exemplify why starting with good ingredients matters. Ben loves taking home a can of these because, "when I take them home I know I will be cooking soon. The tomatoes are sweet yet rich and their reliability opens up so many avenues for creativity. Knowing that taste is built into my dish takes some of the stress out of the endeavor."
Sweet and succulent with an acidic kick, these canned tomatoes are the secret to homemade tomato sauce that tastes like nonna stirred it up just for you. Turn them into a spicy arrabiata, enrich them with deep fried eggplant for alla norma, or follow Ben’s advice and let them inspire your creative energy. Drizzle good olive oil on top. Invest in worthy pasta. And don’t forget the Cravero Parmigiano Reggiano.
