Peach Galette with Honey Vanilla Pistachio Brittle & Cardamom Rose Whipped Cream.

Last summer, when peaches were at their peak, I decided to dive headfirst into the sweetest flavors I knew: Peach with rose, cardamom, honey, vanilla, and pistachio. I played with texture and scent: The heady aphrodisiac of vanilla bean, spicy cardamom, tender rose, and mellow, grounded pistachio. This galette is my dream playground of flavor and edible perfume.

I couldn’t resist sharing it again this year—the perfect jumping off point for all your stone-fruit galettes, flavored whipped creams, and nutty brittles. Remember, too, that your farmers market is the perfect place to bond with your local fruit farmer. Not only will they help acquaint you with the stunning varietals of stone fruits now in season, they also often sell “pie bags” or fruit that’s slightly bruised and best for baking. To me this is basically mecca. I love loading up on pie bags—either for baking or jamming—throughout the season.
