a quick dessert for a late summer evening, when peaches are ripe and meals are enjoyed outdoors. halve peaches, remove pits, and brush lightly with oil. place face-down on a medium/high grill just long enough for marks to appear-- 3-4 minutes or so. fill with a spoonful of whipped mascarpone and local honey, sprinkle with turbinado. add fresh herbs if you like-- i would have preferred basil, but thyme worked well and i'm sure mint would be delicious. i tend to opt for the savory. serve with a crisp white wine that's (hopefully) already open.
