Festa di pomodori

At some point in the middle of the summer, one of my genius friends decreed we should plan to have a tomato festival to celebrate the end of summer. Early in September we made it happen! Most of us brought home-made tomato dishes, and one person brought drinks, and we drank repeatedly to our cleverness. The festa must be repeated!

We started with salsa:
Then  had crostini:
Then we moved on to my sister's offering, gazpacho:
Then tomato salad - made with a surprising combo of water, oil, and vinegar, so it's soupy for dipping purposes:
Then we had pasta with a POUND of brie in the sauce... (but it did make a lot!):
And finished with my offering, a cherry tomato cobbler:

It was probably as well we had no dessert, though we did ponder whether tomato ice cream, gelato, or sorbet might be good. Perhaps we'll find out next year!
