Have you tasted one of Irving Mink's Tomatoes?

This time of year in the Hudson Valley is one of my absolute favorites. With all the great local ingredients available from our favorite farms such as Migliorelli Farm, Sky Farms, Brittany Hollow to name a few, the menu becomes that much more robust with local fresh flavors.

One of my favorite vendors is Irving Mink. He brings us tomatoes with love. On many occasions, he will pull out a ripe red tomato from the delivery just to introduce it to me.

"Look," Mink says, "Look how gorgeous this one is, so red, so great."

So the next time you stop in, try one of these new additions to our regular menu that include Irving Mink's succulent local organic tomatoes;

• Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho
• Heirloom Tomato, Fingerling Potato, hearts of Palm, Sugar Snap Pea and Corn Salad
