It may seem like we’re on an eating rampage, dear FoodShed reader, but when we travel, we like to find new restaurants and revisit our old favorites. And this is how we found ourselves back at Amelia’s Mexican Restaurant – a charming, cozy place in Hillsboro – devouring the handmade tortillas the moment they were brought to our table.
Last year around this time, we paid a visit to Alice Waters’ restaurant Chez Panisse. And then we took a trip out to Point Reyes and the vineyards of Sonoma, eating at farmer’s markets as we went. This baked peaches recipe is from Alice Waters’ ‘Art of Simple Food’, and reminds me of the last days of summer.
The farmland outside Hillsboro, Oregon is verdant, lush, and picturesque. We visited a you-pick peach orchard an hour or two after sunrise to gather the last ripe peaches of the season.
