Chef's notes

Making this for 4 people I doubled the quantities and also added a few handfuls of freshly chopped tomatoes as we had loads spare. At the time this seemed rather unnecessary, however I would do it again. The texture of fresh tomatoes with the zing and flavour of different fresh tomatoes made this rather special.
