It’s hard not to smile when you bite into a great peach. That’s why this month on Live.Love.Lux we have articles starring peaches, and have partnered with Sara Forte of Sprouted Kitchen to share tips, insights and recipes featuring one of our favorite summer fruits.
Forget wine and cheese pairings: In the summertime, cheese and fruit — peaches, in this case — is where it’s at.
Most often, this duo is found on cheese plates: Think gruyere and dried apricots; ricotta and sliced pears; brie and raspberry jam. Given its popularly on a cheese plate, one can assume that fruit and cheese would be just as good in a warm grilled cheese sandwich.
And it is.
In this recipe, the sweet peach chutney is made a little spicy with some red pepper flakes. Spread that sweet and spicy goodness inside the sandwich with the super melty fontina and nutty-salty Parmiggiano for a unique and harmonious flavor combination you won’t soon forget.
That said, if warm fruit is not your thing, ease into the sweet combination with a balsamic glaze or some raw apple slices that offer sweetness with a lovely crunch. Or, if you want to stick to the cheese plate plan, this chutney recipe can be served room temperature with a sharp white cheddar, pecorino or something similar. And of course, a nice glass of crisp white wine won’t hurt.
