Cut fruit in half (apricots, peaches, plums or nectarines), toss with extra virgin olive oil, salt & pepper and place on a hot grill until you can see grill marks forming. Flip once and then pull off and serve with your favorite grilled meat. Chicken, pork, lamb or duck all work well, even beef! Add spices like curry, cumin or cinnamon, garnish with fresh herbs like basil & thyme. Brush with molasses, pomegranate molasses, honey or aged balsamic vinegar. Be creative, so many choices, so little time...
As a caterer for over 30 years, I have established a reputation for consistently creating original menus inspired by the occasion and the season, presenting them with an ease and elegance uniquely my own. Fresh, locally-sourced ingredients are the basis of my creative “from scratch” menus, which range from the classically elegant to rustic and whimsical.
