The first gift from our natural garden: the long smooth tomatoes of the summer of 2020. A puree born for family use and consumption, it has become a sufficiently large stock to deserve sharing outside the walls of our farmhouse. These tomatoes harvested at the peak of maturity were grown with a lot of care and zero chemistry. A product to keep the summer all year round in a jar. We have transformed the tomatoes exactly as we would have done for our pantry: only three ingredients that, perfectly balanced, create a puree that is as essential as it is successful. A few minutes in the pan to make a quick and tasty tomato sauce, to be used as a base for other sauces, for pappa al pomodoro, to season a pizza. Or raw, to entertain yourself with a Bloody Mary while the rest boils in the pot.
Ingredients: tomato, salt, basil.
Braja comes from a vegetable garden, a small and generous piece of land in our family's farmhouse in Sommariva del Boscowhich during the summer of 2020 gave us its abundant and delicious fruits. Fruits so abundant that we have decided to transform and share them. Braja's is a project that starts from the earth. We are first of all a farm, a reality with an ancient peasant history with very close ties with the territory and its actors. We are a network of producers and a collector of agricultural realities that share as we do the values promoted by Slow Food: projects that look at environmental sustainability, the promotion of biodiversity and the protection of Piedmontese farming knowledge. Our values are translated into the selection of unique, excellent and expressive products that we bring you. Each product tells its story, and it does it as we do it on the farm: out loud.
