Restaurants offer heirlooms worth sinking your teeth into

In an effort to provide some relief to local tomato farmers affected by the tomato salmonella outbreak, and to promote a celebrated, colorful summer crop, San Francisco chefs have created Heirloom Tomato Week. Nearly 50 local restaurants will spotlight heirloom tomatoes grown by local farmers, in signature dishes or full tasting menus, during the occasion. The celebration is set for Aug. 14 through Aug. 24.

Participants include Joey Altman of Miss Pearl’s Jam House, Chris Cosentino of Incanto, Bruce Hill of Bix, Craig Stoll of Delfina, Traci des Jardins of Jardiniere and Brian O’Connor of Sutro’s at the Cliff House. For a complete list, visit www.sfchefsfoodwine.com.

The National Restaurant Association estimates that the outbreak of salmonella bacteria has cost the food industry at least $100 million.
