Earlier today, I took a break from my norm to photograph Billie and her Tomato Mango Salad at the Sunflower Cottage. She’ll be presenting next week at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley’s Tomato & Garlic TasteFest. Feel free to stop by for a taste (it’s free!) on Aug 25:
At 11 a.m., Billie Clifton, herb expert and owner of Sunflower Cottage garden center in Middletown, Virginia, will present “Fresh Herbs for Tomato Recipes”. Attendees will learn about a variety of recipes using herbs and tomatoes and will get to taste a fresh Tomato Mango Salad prepared with fresh mint and cilantro as well as a tomato and lavender jam. The program will also include a recipe swap and Clifton encourages attendees to bring their favorite garlic or tomato recipes to share.
