This glorious salad is summer on a plate. The tomatoes and peaches pair beautifully and are elevated by the herbs, shallots, cheese and vinaigrette.
Use the best tomatoes you can find, and do not refrigerate them before using. Please- you will kill all their flavor and mar their texture. Use a young chèvre if you can, or really, any good goat cheese will do. If you're growing herbs in your garden, use those. They will taste more delicious than anything you buy. And use a ripe peach but not one that is remotely mushy.
Since I was very young, I've adored a good crisp and still take great pleasure in all manner of crisps, crumbles and cobblers today. They remind me of home; they're simple yet, when well done, extraordinarily good; they're flexible; and they're a terrific way to highlight fresh fruit. I love blackberries and peaches and enjoy adding herbal elements into sweet things; it provides terrific contrast to the sugar aspect as well as a complexity you might not otherwise have. This is a perfect crisp in my opinion. I hope you enjoy it too!Read More
Growing up in Louisiana, I came to love Tabasco pepper jelly. Spread over a Port Salut-topped cracker? Perfection! I also adore plum jam and wanted combine both into a jam with the spice of the pepper jelly but the ease in making of the plum. This perfectly fits my bill. Love!Read More
This jam takes advantage of the sweet depth of white peaches by adding a savory component of rosemary, black pepper and Cognac. This would be fabulous on grilled bread and/or as a spread for a good, salty, hard cheese!Read More
This is a scrumptious treat that was highlighted in the Recipe Redux column that Amanda Hesser used to write for the NYTimes Magazine. I've made this recipe countless times, and it always receives rave reviews!Read More
