Heirloom tomatoes have positively taken Australia by storm. And no wonder. When these tomatoes are in season they are in any shape and size. Cherry tomatoes, little yellow pear-shaped tomatoes to massive deep red Ox-heart tomatoes, it's all about flavour. Cut the big ones in halves or quarters here before roasting, and discard any green stems or vines. Make this when tomatoes are at their best, in the warmer months.
