Table Talk: August 5

(article, Kim O'Donnel)

p(blue).(Editor's note: This chat is over, but the transcript is available to read here. And join Kim for another Table Talk chat, most Thursdays.)

Midsummer is the season of fresh fruit — all kinds of berries and many of the stone fruits (think apricots, plums, peaches, cherries). Figs are coming on, and grapes and melons are ripening. Before long, apples and pears will be ready.

And yes, tomatoes!

What fruit are you enjoying most now — and how are you serving it?

[%image reference-image width=400 float=right]This week on Table Talk, Kim O'Donnel will lead a discussion about fruit: How best to enjoy it at the height of ripeness, or preserve it for later.  

Join Kim, right here, on Thursday, August  5, at 1 p.m. ET, 10 a.m. PT. Sign up below to receive an email reminder of the chat.

Kim, a trained chef and longtime food journalist, will soon publish a cookbook for people trying to eat less meat. Every week, she brings ideas, tips, and recipes to her live chats — right here at Table Talk, most Thursdays.
