  • President Josiah Bartlet, apart from being a charismatic and noble leader of these United States, had a real thing for food. Be it the Butterball turkey hotline or pumpkin soup with cheese gnocchi, the man knew both good policy and food. If only he weren't a figment of Aaron Sorkin's imagination, much like this interpretation of Alain Passard's dessert tomato.

    I just now found this video, and I had no idea a recipe like this existed! I'm going to have to make this, then figure out how to make a tomato cheesecake to freak people out.

    In the show, it probably was just one big tomato because President Bartlett was supposed to have dinner with his wife but for some reason she wasn't there so he invited Leo.

    I think Sepal and peduncle of tomatoes are poisonous I would remove them before cooking
