The hottest, muggiest New York month is ending on a hot, muggy note.
Here's a look at some of what we ate at summer's height.
A good month for baking. The super-simple muffins...
Nigel Slater's it-doesn't-get-better-than-this almond and peach cake. I made it three times.
The sweetest, most clear, most juicy white farmers' market peaches, splashed with cold prosecco.
Ratatouille, employing all roof farm crops:
And lamb chops, not from the roof farm. But we can dream, can't we?
More lamb, roasted on lemon slices.
Vietnamese sticky ginger and garlic chicken.
The roof farm watermelon!
A leisurely breakfast of organic eggs and pancetta.
And a bed of potatoes...
...for a juicy brown roast chicken.
The new Transatlantic cocktail: Juneberry and cherry-infused Calvados, topped with prosecco.
And finally, the stars of the show and of the terrace, and we shall not forget them: the cornucopia of figs.
I'm ready for Fall.
