Tomato Festival

A celebration of tomatoes.

A celebration of tomatoes.

In February, a friend and I went to the Tomato Festival at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney. There were tomatoes to taste, tomatoes to eat, tomatoes to drink, cooking and canning classes, a food market — a veritable celebration of tomatoes! And there were many more people than I expected for such a quirky event.

There was tomato artwork in the form of a mandala (a circular figure representing the universe in Hindu and Buddhist symbolism), albeit with non-tomato elements.

Mandala made with tomatoes and friends.

I arrived before my friend, and indulged in something sweet while waiting.

Time to taste!

Tomato Festival tasting. Grab your toothpick and get stuck in!

We both agreed that this was our favourite:
