August: Look back in hunger

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.
