Sizdə pomidor var?

I had a friend who struggled to learn Azerbaijani. Practically all she could say was "Salam" and "Sizdə pomidor var?". But she got a lot of mileage out of that one phrase!

I have just returned to Baku from beautiful Qabala. So fresh, so serene! We stopped by the farmer's market. I got two kilos of beautiful plum tomatoes. Can't beat an Azerbaijani tomato. Better than Italian! Cook with some white wine and garlic. Reduce, strain, add cream and enjoy! Perfect summertime meal.
