Taking a Bite of the Isle of Wight

THE large bowl of tomatoes invites interest. Its contents, nearly spilling onto the table, are ripe, fragrant and strikingly assorted. On the wall nearby is an image of a diamond shaped island, the ‘earth’ made of tomatoes fringed by a ‘sea’ of cucumbers – a depiction of the destination I’ve sped to during British Tomato Week, aboard catamaran, ‘Light Rider 1’.
