I recently found San Marzano tomatoes and have been very pleased by the results of using them in my dishes. Here in Austin, I've found that the Central Market brand has the DOP labeling and were very good. I'll have to keep my eyes out for other versions to try.
I tried to order some from Cento's web site to try them out. However, not only were the cans more expensive (which is fine, I was willing to pay), but the shipping and handling was more than the tomatoes themselves. yikes!
The labels look familiar. I'll have to keep an eye out for them in the stores.
