Tomato bath for restaurant staff

Have your say

SPLAT! Staff at Sheffield restaurant La Tasca are adding a splash of Spanish colour to fundraising for St Luke’s Hospice as they immerse themselves in cold tomatoes.

The Ecclesall Road restaurant is doing its own version of the Tomatino Festival, where the residents of the town of Bunol near Valencia bombard each other with 240lbs of ripe tomatoes.

The Sheffield version will be slightly less messy, though, with the La Tasca team sponsored to take it in turns to sit in a bath of squashed tomatoes next Wednesday.

There will also be a special tomato themed menu for the day, with proceeds going to St Luke’s.
