Move Over, San Marzano Tomatoes – Giada De Laurentiis Likes These Ones Even Better

We have a lot of love for tomatoes, from the rainbow riot of heirloom tomatoes at the farmer’s market in the summer, to the sweet cherry and grape tomatoes we stand by all winter. But canned and jarred tomatoes are the real heavy-hitters in our kitchn. You’ve probably heard that canned tomatoes, which are packed when the tomatoes are at their peak ripeness, are better than out-of-season tomatoes, and you’ve probably also heard countless foodie types extol the virtues of Italian San Marzano tomatoes. But San Marzano isn’t the only place in Italy that’s known for their sweet tomatoes. Giada De Laurentiis, in fact, swears by Corbara tomatoes. Sorry, San Marzano!
