Few foods say summer like sun/vine-ripened, succulent, sweet tomatoes
Seemingly overnight…summer turns to fall with plump figs, swollen grapes and September peaches
a rare, gorgeous and delicious September peach
a peach, toasted pine nut risotto
Along with cooler weather fall risottos with melon, peaches, wild mushrooms or chestnuts make their appearance again.
brodetto di pesce – a seafood tomato-based bisque
The edges of the oleanders brown, their summer beauty fades….
The gorgeous coleus shouts its last hurrah with its delicate purple spikes reaching proudly toward the sky.
