San Marzano tomatoes

drb | Jul 31, 2008 07:21 AM

I've seen a variety of sources (e.g. Rao's cookbook) that specifically recommend San Marzano tomatoes for sauces. I have some questions:

1) Have you tried them? Does it make a difference?

2) Where to find them around here (I assume only canned are available)?

3) What to use if I can't find them - other canned vs. fresh plum tomatoes?

4) or just cheat completely and use Rao's bottled sauces?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
