Featured Recipe from Elizabeth Falkner: Grilled Peaches and Apricots with Yogurt, Honey, and Pistachios

Grilled Peaches and Apricots with Yogurt, Honey, and Pistachios

If you are grilling outdoors in the summer, leave the grill on for this quick dessert, which is inspred by Turkish-Mediterranean cuisine and very refreshing. This is just perfect when I really want something to end a meal but don’t want it too sweet. To cook on the stove, sear the peaches and apricots in a hot cast-iron skillet.

Serves 2 to 4

Ingredients
  • 2 peaches, halved and pitted
  • 2 apricots, halved and pitted
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 ounces plain whole-milk, low-fat, or nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange blossom water
  • 1/4 cup shelled pistachios, coarsely chopped, for garnish
Directions

Preheat a grill to high or heat a cast-iron grill pan over high heat on the stove.

Toss the peach and apricot halves with the olive oil, being sure to coat all sides. Set the fruit halves, cut side down, on the hot grill or pan. Grill until grill marks appear, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and drizzle with the honey. Combine the yogurt and orange blossom water in a small bowl.

To serve, divide the yogurt mixture between bowls. Put the peach and apricot halves on top of the yogurt. Garnish with the chopped pistachios and serve.

Format: Hardcover
These are recipes that Chef Elizabeth Falkner makes when she is at home. She calls them reinvented classics.
The book contains recipes for; condiments and basics, salads, soups, snacks and cocktails, pizza, pasta, noodles, grains and rice, main course, side dishes and desserts. She lists things to stock the pantry with and equipment and tools. There are also pages of advice on how she cooks and methods she prefers to use.

Some of the recipes take a bit of preparation, but if you enjoy cooking - they are not really that high of a difficulty. Pictures are included of many of the dishes and there is an index.
Our family has enjoyed; matzo ball soup, my mom's noodles with chicken, carrots and peas, pork tenderloin schnitzel with plum gastrique, and baked marble or Yukon gold potatoes with brown butter-sour cream sauce.
This is a book for those who wish to try some classic recipes with a bit of a different twist.

I had this book on order for 9 months before it came - and it sure was worth the wait! The recipes I have tried so far turned out perfectly. The ingredients are easy to find at local markets, and Elizabeth's directions are simple to follow - reading them almost makes you feel like she is right there in the kitchen with you. Great comments from my friends and family also, as we are enjoying these amazing meals together. Pizza is next!

Already used a couple of her recipes from her book the day I got it, and my friends that I cook for LOVE them. Plus I do have a big time food crush on chef Falkner so that helps a lot more for me.
