The Adopted Tomato Story

Vanessa Christensen’s story begins on the rural outskirts of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, where she was surrounded by fresh ingredients and a passion for food. Her father, a part-time beekeeper, owned a small honey operation and a massive blueberry patch, while her mother and grandmother were culinary mavericks in the kitchen. As a child, she loved experimenting under their watchful eye, discovering how to create meals that were both pleasing to eat and look at. Food brought them together and made them notorious for hosting colourful dinner parties that guaranteed great cuisine and even better company. 

Adoption is something that’s very close to her heart. She is an adopted child, raised by a parent who was adopted, and who is proud to be raising an adopted child of her own. Vanessa’s family is diverse, adaptable, and inclusive. So are tomatoes. 

Think about it. Tomatoes can be adopted into many recipes. They add flavour and enhance a variety of dishes each and every time.
