Cherry Tomatoes, Feta & Honey Bruschetta

It was in NYC that my good friend (and wonderful cook) Nadia, made these delicious snacks for me one evening while we chatted over a bottle of very lovely Italian wine. 

I remember talking about the jar of honey she had been using to drizzle over the toasts; as always happens when in the company of food lovers, we started on a long chat about where it had come from.

Nadia's jar came fromAndrew’s Honey, her local neighbourhood BeeKeeper who has a stall in Union Square Market. His hives can be found around the rooftops, balconies and gardens off Manhattan and it fascinated me that something so delicious and natural came from the rooftops of this densely packed city.  

When I read about Heather Hills Farm right on our doorstep here in Perthshire and home to around 52 million honey producing bees, I decide to recreate Nadia's delicious snack. The greenhouse is stuffed full of cherry tomatoes and like the courgettes, they could easily take over! 

The result was delicious and they are so simple to make!

    Scottish Tomatoes are at the very top of my food favourites. If I was forced to eat only one thing for the rest of my life this would be my choice. 

    The earthy, sweet smell of Scottish Tomatoes growing in a greenhouse makes my heart sing; it wraps me memories so happy and so simple that I am immediatley transported back to three Tarry Row, standing beside my Grandad chatting about whatever story had come into his head or mine that day. 

    When I was pregnant it was a long hot summer (1993) and I ate cherry tomatoes straight from the wee brown poke as though they were smarties. 

    I tried Gill's simple litle snack - so, so tasty and super easy. If I told you tomatoes are my favourite then they are followed closely by bread and cheese of any description. Quite simply, for me, this is the food of the gods!
