    If you like eating peaches, this is a great cookbook to add to your cookbook collection. Lots of delicious recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinners, desserts, and also for jams and preserves! An added feature is a section about the many varieties of peaches and how to successfully grow and maintain peach trees. Comprehensive and beautifully illustrated cookbook!

    Best Peach Cookbook Ever This is the best peach cookbook I have found. There are so many recipes that I want to try that I don’t know which to make first. But, as I have a box of Peach Truck peaches sitting on my kitchen counter, I need to make my decision fast before they are gone.

    This cookbook is adorable and every recipe is mouth-watering! As a peach-lover, I will definitely be trying my hand at a few of these. I love the genuine stories, reflections, and care put into writing this book. What a tremendous legacy they are giving to their children!

    This cookbook has me so excited for summer and fresh ripe peaches. There are 100 recipes and I can't wait to try many of them.

I always associate Peach Butter with my grandmother and I was happy to see Peach Jam, and Peach Vinegar in the last chapter. Peach Bread Pudding will become a staple.

The book is out June 25, just in time to catch the end of peach season, so hop on this one. Stephen K. Rose and Jessica N. Rose have built a business selling Georgia peaches. They started selling out of their old pickup truck, hence the name, in Nashville, but have grown nationwide. In addition to selling at farmers markets, they also sell to Nashville restaurants. The recipes in this cookbook are a combination of recipes the authors have developed and recipes from restaurants who use their peaches. It’s a good thing and it gives a nice variety of recipes. This would be a great book for anyone who loves peaches and wants to move beyond peach pie and peach cobbler, though those recipes are here too. You can order peaches from The Peach Truck online. I am fortunate to live close enough to Gillespie County, Texas to take advantage of Fredicksburg and Stonewall peaches. Growers are calling this year’s crop a good one, so I am excited to take advantage of my early access to this cookbook. Lemon Peach Pound Cake I have a friend who works at the farmer’s market on Saturdays. Because she loves me, she brought me a bunch of early peaches from Fredicksburg. I was happy to get them and asked for more, please so that I could test recipes in The Peach Truck Cookbook. The peaches needed to be used immediately and were rather banged up, so I peeled and diced them and made the Lemon Peach Pound Cake found in The Sweet Stuff chapter. The recipe was created by Nashville pastry chef, Lisa Donovan. Based on this recipe alone I would buy any cookbook she may write. Donovan won a Beard award last year for her essay on her experiences with rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment and misogyny in professional kitchens. As yet, she does not have a cookbook, so this one will do for now. This pound cake recipe is a keeper. It was so good. There is a warning before the recipe that you are in danger of eating an entire loaf in one sitting. I thought it was an exaggeration. It was not. It’s a perfect everyday cake – not too sweet for breakfast, but sweet enough for after dinner dessert. It has a little cornmeal in it, which gives it a nice texture and flavor that goes well with the peaches. The peaches keep it moist and tender. It would have been more lemony if I had made the lemon glaze, but I found myself out of powdered sugar and too busy eating pound cake to go to the store. A friend and her brother were visiting and confirmed that this is an excellent cake. You would not be wrong to buy the cookbook for this recipe alone. Peach Ketchup There is a whole chapter on different sauces and ways to preserve peaches past peach season called “Pantry: Your Future Self Thanks You.” Of the various preserves, jellies, jams, chutneys and such, I decided to try the Peach Ketchup. Ketchup is a way of preserving fruit, not just a sugary tomato condiment. I have never liked tomato ketchup, nor have I ever made any other kind of fruit ketchup. I halved the recipe and now I wish I hadn’t. I’ll probably make another batch later. It’s so good. Peeled and sliced peaches are simmered with sweet onion, garlic, vinegar, brown sugar and spices. The resulting sauce has a strong flavor – peachy, vinegary and redolent of cloves. It’s like a savory peach butter. I knew it would be tangy, but I wasn’t expecting the flavor explosion in my mouth. In the cookbook, they suggest pairing the ketchup with a double patty burger. I don’t eat beef, so I made some pulled pork (not the one in the cookbook, I don’t have a smoker) and crusty rolls. I am going to spend my summer putting peach ketchup on everything. And I’m going to make more recipes from this cookbook. There are some peach tamales and a peach and rhubarb slab pie calling my name. This is a good late spring/early summer cookbook, especially if you have access to good peaches. The recipes I didn’t try mostly look delicious and intriguing. With a number of pages devoted to the area’s food scene, this would also be a good cookbook for anyone in the Nashville area, or planning to visit the area. It’s always possible that I chose the only two good recipes in the book, but I doubt it. And frankly, if you bought this just for the peach pound cake and peach ketchup, I wouldn’t blame you.

    I seldom read cookbooks cover to cover, but I did this one due to one of the Indianapolis Public Library's 2020 summer reading activities, which required me to read a cookbook and then make something from it. I picked this one because we happened to have half a crate of Peach Truck peaches arriving that same week from a friend - it turns out, reading a cookbook takes quite a bit longer than you'd think it would. We finished eating the peaches before I finished reading this book, so my cookery ex I seldom read cookbooks cover to cover, but I did this one due to one of the Indianapolis Public Library's 2020 summer reading activities, which required me to read a cookbook and then make something from it. I picked this one because we happened to have half a crate of Peach Truck peaches arriving that same week from a friend - it turns out, reading a cookbook takes quite a bit longer than you'd think it would. We finished eating the peaches before I finished reading this book, so my cookery experiment will have to be done with non-Peach Truck peaches instead. But it was still nicely serendipitous to be reading this, with its paeans to good fresh peaches, immediately after having had the chance to try some. I'm not one to wax rapturous about a particular brand of fruit but the typical handling process for peaches must be rather unimpressive, because these peaches were tons better than the average kind I buy in a grocery store. Even a fancy, high-end grocery store. I have no doubt the recipes herein would be greatly elevated by using their particularly excellent produce. The book itself is pretty much what you'd expect: heartwarming stories from the owners of the Peach Truck about their early start-up days, the things they learn from being in a business driven by seasonality and the vagaries of fruit farming, the network of food-related relationships that their industry allows them to enjoy, how nice it is raising their three kids in Nashville. They really, really play up the magic of peaches, which is I guess unsurprising from people who make peaches their entire livelihood, but is a little eye-rolling at times. The food photography is top-notch. I obviously haven't tried all the recipes but they are inventive and creative, finding clever ways to incorporate peaches into a wide variety of breakfasts, sides, mains, and drinks, as well as a surprisingly large assortment of desserts and preserved foods. Many of the dishes are twists on Nashville restauranteur dishes that famous-name chefs have collaborated with them to create, which means sometimes they seem overly ambitious or just overly complicated for anything except a very fancy meal. My biggest annoyance in this regard was main dishes that included the peach-infused element together with one or two sides that, while probably tasty and complimentary, were not really related. While it looks beautiful on the pages, a dish requiring that I prepare three or four separate elements is not one that's going to become a go-to, no matter how good it is. There were some simpler preparations, however. I haven't decided which recipe I'm going to make this week in order to complete my activity - probably one of the mixed drinks, because I only have a few peaches and comparatively little time available, this week. Or maybe one of the fresh salads. Who knows? What I do know is that next year, I'm ordering a whole crate.

    What a beautiful, well made and delicious looking cookbook! At first glance, I must say it has absolutely gorgeous photos. The authors first take us on a journey of how they got involved in selling peaches and the History of the Peach. They also explain what it takes to grow a peach and a description of a few varieties to keep an eye out for. There's also midway through the cookbook information on How to prune a Peach tree along with a Resource guide for Fort Valley, Georgia.

I particularly enjoyed the recipes for new ways to use peaches in sandwiches and salads, although the standby dessert, jams and sauces are excellent. The peach rum conserve I made up disappeared really fast, as did the peach chutney. I used frozen peaches for most of the things I tried this time of year--Jan-March--but come June I'll be at my local peach stand stocking up to try the rest of the offerings.

I am most excited about the Peach Dutch Baby. Or maybe the Peach Bourbon rub. I can't decide.

That being said, there is a wide variety of peach infused recipes to be had. Caprese Salad and a BLP sandwich, peach substituted for the tomato...not something I would eat, but I bet it is something I can spring on others. Candied peach bacon? Hell yeah!

    If the Tree Ripe Fruit Company comes to your town delivering peaches every summer, this would be an awesome cookbook to pick up. I loved reading about the history of the company and hearing how passionate the owners are about getting fresh, ripe peaches into the hands of people around the country. I enjoyed the beautiful photos and getting some inspiration for ways to use my own box of peaches.

I love that they shared a bit of their stories about growing up around peaches and other fresh fruit, working with a family farm, and getting fresh peaches to Nashville in this book. Having an attachment to Nashville it was so fun to read about their experience there and how it is a city for dreamers, regardless of what your dream is. I loved how they spun bits of their story into the cookbook as it went along. Especially the focus on family, giving, inclusion, and bonding over food and meals. The story of stripping their kiddos down to eat peaches naked on the front porch and then spraying them off and chasing them around the yard was just the sweetest thing I've read in a long time.

Basically all of the recipes... Right After Reading: Y'all I love peaches. I knew this cookbook would be right up my alley, and it truly was.

    You know it’s summer when the peach truck is in town! Peaches make a hot summer magical and memorable. I had the great honor in winning this cook book at the 12th south peach baking contest this year. I grabbed my prized box of peach truck peaches and immediately started cooking with this book. In the book, you will find photos that are mouth watering, Jessica and Stephen’s story is inspiring and a history on how peaches made their imprint in Georgia. The recipes are direct and easy to follow. You know it’s summer when the peach truck is in town! Peaches make a hot summer magical and memorable.

In the book, you will find photos that are mouth watering, Jessica and Stephen’s story is inspiring and a history on how peaches made their imprint in Georgia. The recipes are direct and easy to follow. Already I’ve done 10 recipes and even repeated some(recipe 11 is in the oven as I’m typing this review). If you’re brand new to cooking, this book will give you the practice and confidence you’ll need. there are some good basic fundamentals that can transfer to another cuisine. The minty peach lemonade is unlike any other cold drink I’ve tasted, my husband raved about the peach milk shake, my daughters loved the Sweet Sorghum grits and stone fruit crostini(we prefer it with sour dough instead of a baguette). It’s clear there is passion and time in this quality book, makes me wonder how many times did they taste test the recipes. It’s a wonderful book that belongs in every cookbook collection, or be the start of a new menagerie! Definitely recommend this book! Note: don’t just use any peaches, get high quality. You will definitely taste the difference in your recipe. Spend the extra dollar. Remember, you’re helping a local business when you do.

    My mother is a peach freak so I thought I’d already had every single peach formulation under the sun. Imagine my surprise! There are new recipes for peaches to enjoy in ways I’ve never seen before, in addition to old favorites and new twists on traditional dishes. Beautiful layout as well, with pictures throughout. I’m keen to try a few now and hungry for peaches!
