So long to peach season.  So far summer has been, well, pleasant.  I don’t want to jinx it, but 40% humidity is swell.  I know there is still plenty of time for summer to exact its payment, leave its blistering southern impression, but here’s to the peaches, heirloom tomatoes, squash and okra and the porch that I have been able to enjoy while eating those.  I shot this at Pearson Farm in Crawford County, Georgia.

Coffee, French-Indian meat and/or vegetable filled puff pastries and a sunny corner to sit in.  Patisserie.  Spice to Table.

Chilli Chocolate Cake
Spice to Table
An Indian patisserie is opening in Atlanta on August 1st in Old Fourth Ward Studioplex.  They will be serving breakfast and lunch.  All the breads and pastries are baked in house.  The space and food were a food shooters paradise.  Can’t wait to try everything…I really mean everything.

Hibiscus Margarita

Edgar’s mom steeps dried Hibiscus flowers in simple syrup back in the kitchen of El Don Mexican Bar and Grill.  Traditional drinks and traditional food from Mexico are hard to beat any season, but somehow they suit summer best.  My friend Shea did “The Day of the Dead” art throughout the restaurant. 

It’s not Maw Maw’s “snitchy pies” but they’re still pretty tasty.  You can find these fried peach pies in Clanton, AL at Peach Park.

Pop’s house on Davis Street Burlington, NC.  He would have been celebrating his 74th birthday this month.  This used to be a dairy farm.  The barns are all torn down.  They would take left over milk to “Tent City” to hand out.
