I remember finishing a summer job in Provence, an incredibly abusive job that made me question what exactly I was doing with my life. I took the TGV to Monoco to have lunch at Alain Ducasse. This was 1994, and Chef Ducasse was recognized with 3 stars but was not quite the international sensation he is today.
My lunch lasted 4 hours and in many ways I have not been the same since. But in answer to your question, I was served a pasta with tomato sauce and tomato confit and that's it. I'll never forget it, but less for the taste and much more for the boldness of the dish. He was saying, I think in essence, there isn't anything much better than that in the middle of the summer. And he was right.
So it's what I'll be making tonight, now that you've reminded me of it.
