The Perfect Peach: Recipes and Stories from the Masumoto Family Farm
By Marcy Masumoto, Nikiko Masumoto, and David Mas Masumoto. Foreword by Rick Bayless.
The Masumoto family's amazing heirloom peaches-which are available for a few weeks each year at the best produce markets and top restaurants in the country-are widely considered the best peaches in the world.
Their debut cookbook gathers the 50 favorite recipes, from classics like Hearty Peach Cobbler, Peach Chutney, and Slow-Cooked Pork Tacos to inspired combinations such as Prosciutto-Wrapped Peaches, Caprese with Peaches, Spice-Rubbed Pork Chops and Grilled Peaches, and Stuffed French Toast. And the pristine flavor of a just-picked summer peach can be enjoyed year-round with the easy-to-follow instructions for drying, canning, freezing, or jamming the best of the harvest.
With rich recipe and location photographs fresh from the orchard accompanied by eloquent essays that evoke the soul of family farming and the nuances of a life filled with peaches, The Perfect Peach is for anyone who longs to savor the flavor of a pristinely ripe peach. Hardbound: 176 pp.
