It’s peach season in South Carolina! Visit Charleston’s roadside produce stands or farmers’ markets, and you’ll find baskets laden with the freshly-picked fruit.
At Peninsula Grill, Executive Pastry Chef Claire Chapman finds the sweet spot between the disciplined tradition of French pastry and a passion for showcasing seasonal flavors at the moment of ripened perfection.
Chef Chapman’s crispy, flaky, and light-as-air Napoleon is an elegant homage to the local summer peach harvest. Vanilla cream cheese mousse is tucked between a housemade graham cracker cookie and puff pastry, local peaches slow roasted in Madeira and Charleston Tea, and cherry sauce complete this delicious dish. Try it tonight—before Charleston’s peach season ends!
