Crock-N-Roll is kicking off its resurrection with delicious peaches! July and August are in the peak season for this sweet and juicy ingredient; which is more than appropriate for the Welcome Back recipe, since both chefs are from the Peach state.
A few changes have taken place during the chefs intermission, including the relocation of Chef Tiffany back to New Smyrna Beach, FL (she could no longer spend time away from her bestie...). The challenge will stay the same and the chefs will still be cooking separately, each of them creating a masterpiece in their Kitchens by the Beach.
Peaches are normally thought of as a snack or a dessert, but research shows a creative chef will use peaches in poultry, pork and seafood recipes as well.
Peaches may not look delicious (since they oddly resemble someone's butt cheeks), but I have learned a well-defined cleft is a sign of maturity. Choosing peaches with firm skin and a good crack will deliver sweet savory flavor to any meal!
