Pan-fried Potato Gnocchi, Sautéed Honeycomb Tomatoes and Spinach

My taste test-winning tomato, Burpee Europe’s lovely Honeycomb was a favourite with other gardeners too. This exquisitely flavoured golden orange tomato has cherry-sized fruit on long trusses.

With a high Brix level and super aroma, Honeycomb has a sweetness that has a lasting hint of honey in the aftertaste.

This recipe was created for Burpee Europe by chef Valerie Hamelin.
