Recipe: Fried Peaches with Cinnamon Ice Cream

Fried Peaches with Cinnamon Ice Cream It’s hard to improve upon a perfectly ripe peach—an earthly boon that Alice Waters champions as “the most delicious food”—but Nicholas Farina’s recipe for fried peaches might just manage it. The chef of Verdad Restaurant & Tequila Bar batters up juicy yellow peach halves and fries them until golden and gently crispy, then crowns them with scoops of custardy cinnamon ice cream. It's a tasty dessert that’s sure to test all minimalist resolves.

Market Haul: August 3

the market haulIt probably comes as no surprise that here at the JBF offices, we like to talk about food—a lot. One of the topics we most often discuss is what we bought at the greenmarket or received in our weekly CSA box and what we’re planning on cooking with it. Sometimes even the most experienced cook needs a little inspiration, especially when faced with five pounds of rutabaga for the third week in a row. To bring that conversation to our readers, we’re launching a new series called Market Haul in which we’ll share a list of ingredients and the dishes we plan to make with them. We hope you’ll jump into the discussion with your own recipe ideas and ingredient challenges

The Haul: green beans, dill, Japanese eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, cipollini onions, carrots, garlic, kohlrabi, Walla Walla onions, peaches, nectarines, blueberries

Recipe: Champagne Jelly with Golden Raspberries

Champagne Jelly with White Raspberries and Mint While we're always game to kick off a meal with a glass of Champagne, we also love the idea of letting some bubbly spill into the dessert course. In this ethereal treat from chefs Scott Crawford and Steven Greene, Champagne is set into a shimmery, pearl-toned gelée, then garnished with a dab of crème fraîche and golden raspberries, which are milder in flavor than their red cousins.
