I never thought of roasting tomatoes for sauce - duh, I will have to try that because it sounds delicious and I adore roast vegetables, although it might involve multiple kilos of cherry tomatoes, which are presently my snack of choice every time I pass the kitchen and never enough over for a sauce project LOL!!

So easy: just put the tomatoes (whole if small, halved if larger) in a baking tray, add chopped garlic, some sprigs of thyme if you have it, seasoning (maybe also a little sugar) and drizzle with olive oil, then cook at gas 4 for about an hour, or at a higher heat for half that time if you need to get a move on. Press through a sieve or puree with a mouli-legumes.

There is something delicious about a roasted tomatoe sauce. It was something I had never tried before and we weren't disappointed with the results.

I am currently working my way through Tracy Lawson's book too and I marvel at the amount of work people do in their kitchens. I just can't get the knack of it I am afraid, although I do try hard, I now make a home made stock and soups regularly, which always seem to turn out well and are very tasty.

It is a pleasure, however to read about other people's sucesses in the kitchen, it's a bit like arm chair traveling!!
