You Say Tomato, I Say Domata

Can anyone imagine Greek cuisine without the tomato? When this relative newcomer arrived in Greece it was at first disparaged and feared. It took a curious Capuchin monk living on one of the oldest streets in the world, in the Plaka section of Athens, to first plant this new-world vegetable in the 18th century. From there, the tomato spread to Santorini, where it has been a staple crop ever since. And the rest is history. Diane follows the path of this most basic food, all the while cooking up some of Greece's most delectable tomato-based dishes. Tomatoes & Bread 3 Ways; Bruschetta, Ladenia and Pizza; My Son's Favorite Beef Stew - Kokkinisto; Green Bean Yiahni.
