The Perfect Peach: Recipes and Stories from the Masumoto Family Farm Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A cookbook showcasing the luscious flavor of peaches in 50 sweet and savory dishes, drawing on the life stories and experiences of America's foremost peach farming family, the Masumotos of California's central valley.

The heirloom peaches grown by third-and fourth-generation peach farmers David Mas Masumoto and his family have received countless accolades — with top chefs such as Rick Bayless and Dan Barber regularly vying for their share of the season's harvest — and numerous features and profiles in the national media. This cookbook gathers the family's favorite recipes, from classics like Peach Cobbler, Peach Salsa, Grilled Peaches, and Peach Glazed Chicken, to inspired combinations such as Vin de Peche, Peach Jicama Salad, and Chicken and Peach Empanadas. Accompanied by eloquent essays that evoke the soul of family farming and the nuances of life filled with peaches, The Perfect Peach revels in a deep understanding of summer's finest fruit from the most authoritative, revered peach growers alive today.

Review:

“This is a very special book, not just because it’s about peaches and the surprising things you can do with them, but because it’s also about growing peaches, the farming life, and, most uniquely, because it’s composed by a family. While reading The Perfect Peach, I couldn’t help but wish that every fruit and vegetable had champions like the Masumoto family, for surely each one deserves it. I look forward to that day.” Deborah Madison, author of Vegetable Literacy and Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone
