Cooking with peaches

Peaches are in season from quite early on in the year and for almost all summer. They can be used for a variety of dishes, raw or cooked, gratined or stuffed, in tarts or simply chopped and mixed with yogurt and a bit of cinnamon for a delicious and speedy pud.

> How to choose ripe peaches
Choose peaches that are soft when you apply a little pressure but relatively firm. The ones with the strongest scent are found at the end of summer. White peaches generally have more taste than yellow ones.

> Peaches go well with:
Herbs: rosemary, basil, tarragon, thyme and mint.
Spices: cinnamon, star anise, ginger and pepper.
Fish: fresh or tinned tuna, scallops, monkfish and other white fish with firm flesh.
Meat: pork, chicken and duck.
