The Splendid Table: 6 Food Books for Summer Reading
From Russ Parsons, Food Editor at the LA Times
This book is by the Masumoto family. David Mas Masumoto is a legendary peach farmer in the Central Valley of California who is actually also a legendary writer — he’s on the National Council of the Arts and he’s written lots of books that are essays about the act of farming and the philosophy of farming. He and his wife, Marcy, and their daughter, Nikiko, have written their first cookbook. Now if you really appreciate these wonderful flavored peaches he’s been growing, what are you going to do with them? It’s everything from how to choose peaches to the difference between the varieties, and lots and lots of recipes, which is really cool.
