This is not a cooked peach dessert, nor is it overly sweet. In the spirit of this dinner, it is pure peach and pure yellow.


  • 8 ripe peaches
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 bottle (750 ml) dry white wine or rosé


    Peel the peaches with a sharp paring knife. Slice the fruit and put in a bowl. Sprinkle with the sugar and toss gently. Pour the wine over the fruit, cover, and refrigerate for several hours.

    To serve, spoon the peach slices into shallow bowls or glasses, adding half a cup of the winey juices to each.
