On August 14th, the Art and Invention Gallery in Nashville opens an all tomato art show. Join them for a party and heirloom tomato tasting. Their theory is: It is August, it is really hot, everyone is extremely grumpy, and the only thing that sees us through to September are all those fabulous homegrown tomatoes. Ronni Lundy will be there to sign copies of In Praise of Tomatoes. A recipe contest is also planned. Contest judges are Kay West, local food critic; Meg Guiffrieda, owner of the Red Wagon restaurant in East Nashville; and Ann & John Egerton, authors of Southern Food. For more information, call 615-226-2070.
