In Liguria the peaches are of unsurpassed flavor and fragrance. They fairly drip with nectar and, in my view, are the perfect summer dessert just as they are. There are golden peaches and delicate white ones, but the most typical Ligurian peach, which has an almost orange flesh, comes from the town of Volpedo and bears its name. This is the peach that is often used for stuffing. You should select the most voluptuous peaches you can get your hands on. See the photograph in the second section of color illustrations.
