Join Diana Henry, author of How to Eat a Peach: Menus, Stories and Places for a book signing at the Union Square Greenmarket.
In her book, menus are introduced with personal essays in Diana's now well-known voice about places or journeys or particular times and explain the choice of dishes.
The title of the book refers to how Italians end a meal in the summer, when it's too hot to cook. The host or hostess just puts a bowl of peaches on the table and offers glasses of chilled moscato (or even Marsala). Guests then slice their peach into the glass, before eating the slices and drinking the wine.
