English food journalist and prolific cookbook author, Diana Henry, believes that menus can take you places - from a seaside afternoon in Brittany to a sultry evening eating mezze in Istanbul. They also need to flow as a meal and as a group of dishes that the cook can manage without becoming totally stressed. The 24 menus accompanying recipes in this book reflect places Diana loves, and dishes that have become her favorites to prepare and share. Each menu is a story in itself, but the recipes can also stand alone. Like the one from which this book borrows its title. In Italy, when it's too hot to cook, the hostess puts a bowl of ripe peaches out. Guests slice their peaches into a glass of chilled moscato – a custom that says something very important about eating: simplicity and generosity and sometimes not cooking are what it's about.
