Rialto and Muir Glen Tomatoes Giveaway

If you like tomatoes, Jody Adams, and Rialto, then this giveaway is for you.

Unfortunately, tomatoes are not fresh, juicy, and delicious year-round - that's where Muir Glen Organic Tomatoes comes in. These canned tomatoes are picked at the peak of ripeness once a year in California and canned within hours. This method locks in freshness and fantastic tomato flavor. Just last night, I used two cans of their Fire Roasted Crushed Tomatoes to make a simple pasta sauce, and the flavor was fantastic. It's clear fresh tomatoes are used in their products, and somehow, Muir Glen tomatoes avoid having that tin can aftertaste.

In an effort to prove that we can still enjoy tomatoes year-round, Muir Glen asked me if I'd like to offer a giveaway to you all. The giveaway involves loads of their tomatoes, as well as several special items from Chef Jody Adams of Rialto (and TRADE), a James Beard Award-winning chef.

So, what's up for grabs? Here's the lengthy list:

-Signed copy of Adams' book, In the Hands of a Chef: Cooking with Jody Adams of Rialto Restaurant
-Nine cans of Muir Glen Organic Tomatoes (including Diced Tomatoes, Fire Roasted Crushed Tomatoes, and Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes)

  4. August tomato sandwiches that need to be eaten over the sink. With canned ones, there's a flavor-filled cauliflower stew that hits all the right notes when it's cold outside.
