Summer's Iconic Crops

Wednesday, we're paying homage to a few of summer's iconic crops. We'll start off with peaches—those gorgeous, fuzzy flavor bombs, erupting with juice at the slightest bite. The writer and farmer David "Mas" Masumoto and Steven Rosenberg, the Chief Eating Officer at Salt Lake's Liberty Heights market, will tell us how to discern a great peach, and when and how to pick them. We'll also be joined by Amy Goldman, the renowned gardener and author, to worship at the altar of the incredibly diverse heirloom tomato and explore the rich gifts of heirloom melons.
