Charred Cherry Tomatoes are a staple for us in our kitchen. They brighten up a grain salad, pasta, foccacia and pizzas. The intense heat condenses their sweet flavor, making them become a flavor pop to anything you add them too. It was Nancy Silverton who taught Matt this simple trick back when he worked for her at La Tersa, and I share it with you below:
