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 Ashley Rodriguez of Not Without Salt to share tips, insights and recipes featuring one of our favorite summer fruits.
At the breakfast table, there are always the usual fruit suspects: Bananas, berries, and the occasional melon. These staples are delicious in their own right, but perhaps it’s time to shake things up?
This summer, invite peaches over for breakfast.
Peaches make for a great fruity companion to an indulgent breakfast treat, like oatmeal, pancakes or French toast. The sweet, fleshy fruit also pairs well with a nice, crispy bacon (though, really, what doesn’t?).
Since the beginning of culinary time, peaches and cream have been a natural pair. In this recipe, the cream comes in the form of mascarpone, which is a thickened and slightly tangy Italian cream that is similar to cream cheese but a little more delicate in flavor — and a bit richer. The sweet floral flavor of peaches pairs beautifully with mascarpone. It doesn’t hurt that there’s a bit of custard soaked bread and maple syrup involved, too.
