Last night I had the pleasure of being the guest speaker at the Food for Thought Series at the Mary C. O’Keefe Cultural Center in Ocean Springs. I was tasked with giving a short talk on ‘Tomatoes”. Before my talk, delectable tomato dishes were served up in the IP Culinary Arts Cafe. We had tomato and pork kebabs on polenta, tomato pie, and gazpacho. For dessert, a surprisingly yummy tomato-caramel tartlet. Thanks to the nearly 50 folks who shared an evening with me!
