Finalists: A&M Smackdown / Your Best Tomato Recipe

August 29, 2013

A&M Smackdown

We have a long tradition of face-offs here at Food52 (recall peaches, hot toddies, rice puddings), and this month we're doing it again. 

When we announced that Amanda and Merrill would be taking part in a good old fashioned A&M smackdown -- this time with tomatoes -- we had no idea that it was going to be this tough. Right now, we can't help swooning over both of their recipes. Read: we have our work cut out for us.

Featuring Shop all-stars and a limited-edition Five Two apron, a portion of proceeds from every purchase supports American Farmland Trust’s Brighter Future Fund.

I vote for making a Tomato Sundae: A parfait of Tomato Salad, with some Roasted Tomato Jam drizzled over the top!

NOT FAIR! These two recipes are both SO appetizing, but they couldn't be more different. How can one choose a "best" here?
