The Tarantella Guide to Tomatoes

Do you know your passata from your puree? How about the difference between your chopped and plum tomatoes?

No idea? Never fear.

Here at Tarantella, we’re experts in organic tomato-based ingredients and we can help you discover which of our are best for your favourite dishes . From creating classics like Bolognese to party favourites like salsa, we’ve got you covered for making the most of your tasty authentic Italian tomatoes.

Organic Chopped Tomatoes

Chopped tomatoes are perfectly suited for classic dishes, such as Bolognese and Chilli Con Carne.

Tarantella’s Organic Chopped Tomatoes use tomatoes that are grown in rich Italian soil under the hot Mediterranean sun; resulting in excellent flavour for these classic meals.

Organic Peeled Plum Tomatoes

Plum tomatoes are perfect for adding to recipes, such as casseroles and ragu which tend to have a more intense flavour. Thanks to their plump and succulent consistency, they add depth and texture to your dishes.

Tarantella’s Organic Peeled Plum Tomatoes are harvested when ripe and juicy, making them naturally sweet and great for enhancing flavour for these types of meals.

Organic Tomato Passata

Rich in taste and smooth in texture, passata is useful for adding great flavour to your recipes quickly, and is perfect for pizza bases, sauces and soups.

Tarantella’s Passata is made from organic tomatoes that have been finely sieved until perfectly smooth offering a traditional Italian passata to perfectly compliment your recipes.

Organic Tomato Puree

With its thicker consistency and more intense flavour, tomato puree is great for making curry bases or to enhance the taste of your favourite Italian inspired recipes.

Made from cooked and reduced organic Italian tomatoes, Tarantella’s double concentrated organic puree provides intense flavour to your dishes.
