Just Peachy Aug 9th & 10th

As the summer progresses, I love the realization of each of my seasonal crazings;  the first asparagus, blanched & tossed with brown butter, lightly sauteed sugar snap peas, strawberries with shortcake made from my mother’s recipe, the first ears of grilled sweet corn and so on till the crisp apples & butternut squash hit Flaim Farms & Schober Orchards stands at the Collingswood Farmer’s Market.  But it is really exciting to be in the middle of the season when the tomatoes are perfect, the gold bar squash & zucchini are plentiful, green beans are perfect & the peppers, jalapenos, poblanos, green bell, cubanos…. It really is the best time of the year for eating local & really fresh. It is also the time of the year when our local peaches come in, ripe, sweet & juicy. This is the 3rd year that we are featuring peaches in a 3 course menu & the event is one of my favorites. We do 3 courses each featuring peaches for $22.95. If you are a fan of ripe peaches, in the height of their season, you’ll want to stop by for our Just Peachy Promotion.
