5 Must-Try Dishes to Celebrate National Peach Month

By Antonia DePace | August 19, 2020 | Food & Drink

From appetizers and entrees to sweet desserts, the fuzzy orange fruit is bound to impress at these Boston eateries.


1. Burrata and Grilled Peaches, Strega North End

When visiting chef Alain Allegretti joined forces with the team at Strega North End, locals knew they would be in for a treat. Before peach season is over, be sure to order Allegretti’s appetizer accompanied by prosciutto, honey and a basil reduction.


2. Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée, Caramelized Peaches, Davio’s Chestnut Hill

Rich custard and caramelized sugar are at the base of this sinfully sweet dish—but when pastry chef Denise Demoney adds sliced peaches to the top, there’s a whole new juicy twist.


3. Charred Peach and Burrata Salad, Back Bay Social

This colorful salad combines fruity, creamy and salt flavors thanks to crisp prosciutto, baby arugula, herb oil, balsamic glaze and toasted sourdough.


4. Roasted Peach Tart with Almond Praline & Brown Butter Ice Cream, Bambara Kitchen & Bar in Cambridge

Three words: Roasted. Peach. Tart. Get yours inside the Kimpton Marlowe Hotel’s Bambara Kitchen & Bar in Cambridge. Plus, chef David Bazirgan snuggles the tart with housemade brown butter ice cream, making it all the more delicious.


5. Peach Appetizer, Puritan & Company

Deep orange and red colors dot the plate in Puritan & Company’s peach appetizer, where juicy peaches team up with Great Hill blue cheese—all topped in candied pine nuts and drizzled in basil oil.
