(Gerry Furth-Sides) Tonnino Gourmet’s little glass jars even gleam in a special way to catch the light so you know there is something extraordinary in them. This is a new kind of tuna at the table, rich in a bath of olive oil or in clear fresh water. At a time when there are so many cautionary tales about eating fish, it is welcome. The tuna tastes like it was just caught minutes ago.

Tuna’s versatility, healthy reputation and light flavor has long been a staple in the American pantry: drained albacore is always a welcome choice and the American way is to punch it up with mayo and seasonings that slipped into family-favorite traditional salads, sandwiches, and casseroles. My mom used to chop up apples and celery and stud the tuna with it for a delightful crunch.
These days (above) a festive brunch dish may be poached egg, peas and Tonnino tuna – a few dots of hit chile sauce on the plate punch it up even more. It is the definition of sophistication and convenience.
