Salad Caprese Sizzling
A classic insalata caprese takes on a new texture and sweetness when the tomatoes are roasted on a slate stone. A slate stone can be bought at a stone yard (it needs to be washed and seasoned). Also, Sur la Table sells a piastra (the Italian term for cooking on slate, in French it is called pierrade). Details for washing and seasoning the stone can be found in the recipe for Tuna Steaks au Pierrade.
