Peaches: A Celebration of America's Sweetest Season

Peaches: A Celebration of America's Sweetest Season Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

About the Author

John DeMers divides his time among Houston, Austin, and Marfa. He is the author of more than forty published books-many about food, wine, and travel, plus the West Texas Noir series that includes the Chef Brett mysteries starting with Marfa Shadows. When not spinning yarns set in his favorite corner of the Lone Star State, John hosts the Delicious Mischief food and wine radio program on NewsRadio 740 KTRH in Houston and Talk 1370 in Austin. He is a regular contributor to Houston and Prime Living magazines, as well as to Houston ArtsWeek. His other works for Bright Press include the new Lone Star Chefs and the iconic Follow the Smoke: 14,783 Miles of Great Texas Barbecue.
