The best thing you’re not grilling but should be this summer: Fruit! It becomes extra sweet and delicious when charred and caramelized on the grill.

Summer and stone fruit go hand-in-hand like SPF suntan spray and over-sized beach towels packed inside your beach tote.  Nothing captures that juicy sweetness and golden glow better than grilled fruit.  Filled with Vitamins A and C plus potassium and iron, look for fresh peaches, apricots, plums and nectarines rich in color and slightly firm to the touch.  Grilled Peach and Ricotta Bruschetta, one of our favorite grilling recipes, stars Farmers’ Market peaches.

    Il n’est pas à une contradiction prêt le brave Mats : car si le maestro est exceptionnel, pourquoi devrait-il changer ? (si quelqu’un connaît le Mats perso, qu’il n’hésite pas à l’inviter à lire la dernière interview d’ Annacone, histoire de le mettre au courant de ce qui se passe dans le monde du tennis) Je le rejoins cependant sur l&ex#17;28ception Federer, et concernant Rafa, sa perfectibilité hors terre battue m’apparaît comme une évidence.
