Sweet and succulent, peaches are America's favorite fruit. In Mimi's newest book of original recipes, peaches maintain their starring role in desserts, such as Sumptuous Peach Ice Cream, Peach Schnappy Crème Brûlée, and Peach Upside-Down Cake with Rum Cream. But the fruit adds new character depth to other dishes--Buttermilk Peach Muffins and Blackberry Peach French Toast for breakfast, Peach Bruschetta and Chilled Peach Soup as appetizers, and Smoke-Rubbed Skirt Steak with Peach Chive Butter and Spicy Pork Spareribs with Peach Glaze as main courses at dinner. A variety of recipes for beverages--from Sparkling Peach Lemonade to Peach Crantini--are included as refreshing accompaniments.
