The kitchen staff at Westport, CT farm-to-table temple The Dressing Room doesn’t have the luxury to cook with fresh tomatoes all year round. But to prepare this wildly popular dish year round, they buy “as many tomatoes as possible” in the summer and Cryovacs them for later, according to Executive Chef Jon Vaast. It's best served with a mini grilled cheese sandwich. Obvs.

Our guest editor Michel Nischan has spent considerable time cooking all over the world—running kitchens in Milwaukee, New York and at a luxury hotel in India. Cooking was his life and soul. It’s why he got up before dawn and crashed into bed far past midnight. As any champion toques or rising line cook will tell you, cooking professionally at restaurants is the life. And it’s pretty damn addictive. To quit? That’s just not an option.

Why is Michel Nischan guest editing Food Republic's politics section this week? The chef, activist and humanitarian is one of the most inspiring leaders in the food movement, fighting to make better food available to more Americans.

Next week, Food Republic brings in some food politics firepower, handing over an editor's chair to Michel Nischan. The CEO, founder and president of The Wholesome Wave Foundation has been a tireless advocate of getting Americans to eat better and to have better access to healthy food. So, we thought, who better to spark a discussion about how to improve the food situation in this country in 2012 than the man who Washington turns to when it needs answers?
