Peaches, tomatoes, and goat cheese layer cake with a peach-basil sauce
There are some recipes that scream “Summer”, such as the one I am about to present. However, I will not take credit for it since I got my inspiration from an appetizer I ate about a year ago (yes I happen to remember what I ate last year!!) at Duke’s Restaurant in Rome (www.dukes.it). Unfortunately, this year that appetizer is not on the menu anymore!! Therefore, I decided to make my own version of it.
“Marble breeze” was the name of the appetizer, which included tomatoes, peaches, fresh cheese and basil- As the name recalls a breeze of fresh air, it was one of the freshest, most creative dishes I have ever tasted, a perfect summer treat. Most importantly, it never crossed my mind to pair tomatoes with peaches. I also loved the fact that it did not require any cooking, which is a common preparation method in Italian summer dishes.
