Ingredients (makes 1.5lt. tomato sauce)

  • 3kg. tomatoes
  • 120gr. olive oil (approx.)
  • 1tsp salt


  1. Wash the tomatoes, cut them into big chunks and remove top and bottom. Put them in a big pot.
  2. Puree them with the mixer. Add the salt.
  3. Bring the sauce to boil over high heat. Lower to medium.
  4. Cook for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  5. Fill up glass bottles straight away.
  6. Heat up the olive oil and add it on top of the sauce. You need 1cm. of olive oil on top of each one.
  7. Close the lids as tight as you can.

Note: If you want to extract the skin just fill up a pot with water and when it’s steaming hot add the tomatoes for 3-4 minutes. Let them cool down for a few minutes and start pealing the skin. If you want to extract the seeds, do it right after step 2. I don’t extract neither the skin nor the seeds.

      • Hi BrendanI am also awaiting your book with exceetmint! I have been a commercial model for 2 years and have enjoyed it, I now want to move into film and television, I have drama school training (Central school) but went straight into commercial modelling as I just wanted to work- any suggestions how to move and change into it? Ive tried the normal way of approaching and writing to an agent but feel it gets lost with all the applicants- as is inviting them to see me in some plays/screenings I have been in, Thanks for your help!!
