There are so many peach varieties I can't identify them all when I see them. For help with that I turn to a book just out late last summer, "Just Peachy," by another South Carolina cook, Belinda Smith-Sullivan.--Nathalie Dupree "The Post and Courier" (6/24/2020 12:00:00 AM)

This lovely cookbook is brimming with recipes I want to make, information I can use, personal stories that bring the food to life, and photographs that make my mouth water. The author, Belinda Smith-Sullivan (also known as Chef Belinda), has put together a collection of recipes that all feature peaches, in both classic and imaginative new ways. Beyond the recipes, Chef Belinda also provides what amounts to a peach primer, including history, varietals, peach festivals throughout the United States and Canada, and a canning and freezing guide. She even gives guidelines for substituting canned or frozen peaches when fresh peaches aren't in season, so these luscious recipes can be enjoyed year-round.If you're starting to think about your holiday gift list, do consider Just Peachy for your favorite foodie. Not only is it an outstanding cookbook, but it's also quite beautiful, with gorgeous photography by Mark Boughton. I swear, I can almost smell the peaches when I flip through this book!--A Bailey "The Classy Chics" (10/1/2019 12:00:00 AM)
Having moved away, I have a heightened appreciation for, and longing, for foods from the South. Foremost among those rich flavors, each filled with sunshine, are my love for peaches. For me, I love to use them like I use ginger -- in both savory and sweet dishes. So, wow, is this the book for me! First off, the binding and printing is top-notch. The lovely, full-page photography, for many of the recipes, transforms the book. It is lovely enough to almost become a coffee-table book, with beautiful layout and typefaces throughout. The 30+ page introductory sections are both inviting and illuminating, filled with practical tips, including canning and freezing. Each recipe is very clear and few would be difficult to prepare. Yet each dish bursts with flavor, like the Spicy Oven Ribs with Peach Barbecue Sauce. The Country Peach Tart turned out as lovely as its photo, with a burst of Southern sunshine in each bite. I was thrilled to find a recipe for the super simple Peach Cobbler that I had eaten at church events in the South! So easy and incredibly delicious, especially the caramelized edges! A scoop of vanilla ice cream completes it. There are about 130 pages filled with dozens of recipes. If you love peaches, or love someone who does, this warm and inviting cookbook would be an excellent addition to their collection.-- "Foods4.Us" (10/2/2019 12:00:00 AM)
