Fran Costigan - Nutritious & Delicious: Fruit Desserts
Is there anything more satisfying than a seasonal fruit dessert?
Chef Fran loves to eat fresh fruit out of hand but you’ll find her baking, roasting, poaching, even pickling her market fresh produce. As she’s been tending her terrace herb garden this summer, you’ll find thyme, rosemary, basil in the mix in addition to the ubiquitous mint.
Bring your favorites to share and your questions too.
