Make an x shaped slit on the top of the tomato with the tip of a small knife. Cut the green core out of the other end. Boil the kettle, put tomato in a bowl and cover with hot water. After a minute or so the skin will start to split. Run it under a cold tap to avoid the flesh going mushy, and peel skin off with sharp edge of knife.

Skinned Toms

Proceed with recipe of choice i.e. salsa. For tomato concasse, cut in half after skinning, scoop out the pips and cut flesh into small diamonds(or tiny Leaning Towers of Pisas, if you wish. Knock yourself out.)

I was born into the restaurant business & after failing miserably @ school, the natural thing was to get a job washing up in a restaurant(such high hopes). After an apprenticeship with Rick Stein, waiting on tables for Gary Rhodes & a missed oppurtunity with Marco Pierre White(Now there's a chef, Mr. Oliver)...Fast forward 20 years, throw in a couple of kids & a spell in rehab, & MCC Sensi was born. P.S. In a fit of false modesty I forgot to mention my Dad-the one who kicked the kitchen door open for our current crop of pretty vacant T.V. chefs...Keith Floyd (Hi Dad )
