Peach Picking With the Ladies of Treet

Treet Peach Picking - Staff

The Ladies of Treet. From left to right: Cameron, Maria, Me, and Theresa.

Avid readers will remember that last year I went peach picking with some friends at Homestead Farms. Well this year I went peach picking with all the Ladies who make up the staff at Treet. We did it as a slightly belated birthday celebration for moi – and as a way for the staff to get a little fun time outside the kitchen.

I was much more restrained than last year – picking a mere 13 pounds of peaches (last year I picked more than 20 pounds). I’m not quite sure what I’ll do with them yet – are there any reader requests? I’ve been learning how to make pâte brisée (aka the French pie crust) in pastry class, and that kind of begs for a peach pie, don’t you think?

I had a really phenomenal peach & blueberry cobbler at Westend Bistro last night. I bet you could recreate that like gangbusters.

Best thing I ever made with peaches was a peach creme brulee… no reason you can’t make that AND the peach pie.

Silver Diner’s got a delish milkshake made w fresh peaches and blueberries. It’s so refreshing and jammed with fruit. Would live to see your interpretation.
