Overview

Here are almost one hundred recipes celebrating the sweet and subtle peach, the embodiment of southern charm. Peaches are featured in savory appetizers and entrees, classic and innovative desserts, alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks, and condiments like salsas, ketchups, jellies, and jams. The recipes evoke tastes of the past—like peach cobbler or peach ice cream—but appear in tandem with more dramatic/unexpected recipes from chefs in peach-growing regions, including Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. Chapters include an introduction to the joy of peaches, an overview of the fruit’s origins and history, and a look at its nutritional value and other bits of chemistry. DeMers shares a wealth of peach photos, and gorgeous food photos by Shannon O'Hara (Energy Cuisine) bring the recipes to life.
