Chef Tom Colicchio’s Recipes

By Chef Tom Colicchio

NOTE FROM THE EDITOR

Why would a company making tomato sauce name itself The Jersey Tomato Co.? Well, because it makes its sauces with the tomato variety called New Jersey Tomato, a tomato developed in 1934 that holds the reputation of being rich in vitamins and antioxidants and bursting with flavor.

Why would “Top Chef” Tom Colicchio get involved with them? Well, he is a Jersey Boy. But also, and more importantly, Colicchio appreciates the quality of the three sauces produced by the company. They are low in sodium and they don’t have additives, added sugar, citric acid or preservatives. The tomatoes are non-GMO and Kosher. The Jersey Tomato Co. states that they are gluten-free and vegan, but that goes without saying.

To kick off his partnership with the 2010-established company, chef Colicchio has created three recipes for each of the sauces:
Seafood Cioppino with the Spicy variety
Chicken Cacciatore with the Marinara variety
Vegetable Bolognese utilizing the Tomato Basil flavor.
