Recipes from the Best of the Best: Judy Rodgers's Peach and Raspberry Gratin with Noyaux CreamJBF Editors
February 22, 2012
Here's a recipe from our 2004 Outstanding Chef Award winner, Judy Rodgers, to keep on hand for summer: a sweet and tart gratin of peaches and raspberries, topped with bread crumbs soaked in brown butter. In a typical show of ingenuity, Rodgers breaks open peach pits to retrieve the inner kernels (noyaux in French), which she uses to infuse cream with silky, almond-like flavor. Is it July yet? Get the recipe here.
In spring of 2012, JBF will publish The James Beard Foundation’s Best of the Best: A 25th Anniversary Celebration of America’s Outstanding Chefs. This must-have cookbook will feature a delicious, signature recipe from every winner of the Foundation’s Outstanding Chef Award. When we went to press, space required that we omit some surplus essays and recipes. During the weeks leading up to the book’s release, we’ll be sharing this bonus content with our readers. Think of it as an appetizer.
