I am a huge fan of tinned tomatoes. It has been ever so and I always, ALWAYS have multiple tins of them in my larder. I have been known to dine on nothing but a chilled tin of tomatoes sprinkled with lots of black pepper and accompanied with a thick slice of fresh bread spread with softened butter. I'll wager I am not alone in this.
Of course it goes without saying that if you are going to treat yourself to a tin of tomatoes eaten that way, you will want to make sure it's a really nice tin of tomatoes. The el cheapo ones just don't cut the mustard when it comes to that. I have to say with all honesty that the Cirio are my faourite of all the tinned tomatoes and what I use most of the time. I stock up on them when they are on offer. They are really quality. And I am not being paid to tell you that. It comes from my heart. In fact I stock their tomato puree and passata in my store cupboard as well.
They recently asked me if I would like to try one of their recipes. I did. It rocks. I think you will enjoy it too.
