Peach Perfect.

Thursday, August 29, 2013

Tara O'Brady's Seven Spoons has long been one of my favorite food blogs. Tara's recipes and photography are unfailingly gorgeous, and what's more, she herself is a delight (we had the pleasure of working together on this post for Cup of Jo last fall). But what I love most about Seven Spoons is Tara's writing. 

In a recent post featuring Five Spice Roasted Peaches with Glazed Sesame Oats, she notes, "I grabbed yogurt and a spoon, and in a last-second addition, I anointed the cold crumble with maple syrup spiked with Chinese Five Spice, since the blend's base of cinnamon, clove, anise and fennel makes good sense with peaches, and its touch of Sichuan peppercorn would lend its pep to the fruit's intensely honeyed flesh...[it] emerges fragrant and shining, retaining its shape but supple enough to give way to a spoon. My third helping will be with ice cream." 


Yes, please.
