Field notes

This simple dish is a crowd pleaser for any occasion. 


It's another team favourite, especially when the tomatoes are in season and they form the perfect bed for our burrella. The trick to the basil topping is to make it a la minute, to not allow the mix to oxygenate too much. 


Our burrellas are delicate little fellas and are best served when cold.
