A highland fling

our wee adventure on the Black Isle

Tomato heaven


One of the great things about our vegetable glut is that we can return to one of our favourite Spanish breakfasts. We dream about this all winter, and once the glut is here, we eat this until we’re sick of the sight of tomatoes!


No jam or butter for us. No way. Fresh mollete, toasted (one of the great breads of Andalucia). Olive oil (Yunquera Gold – natch!). Chopped garlic. Sliced tomato. Both fresh from the garden. Salt and pepper. That’s it.
