Tortilla Press and blueplate Get Peachy This Week

Chefs Mark Smith and Jim Malaby have a treasure trove of Jersey peaches and aren’t afraid to use them.

Chef Mark’s Tortilla Press in Collingswood and Chef Jim’s blueplate in Mullica Hill are taking advantage of the current peach harvest and will be serving up a ‘Just Peachy’ menu this week.

Take a look at the menu that will be available at Tortilla Press on August 8 and 9:

The Just Peachy menu will be available for $21.95 per person.

Meanwhile…down in Mullica Hill…

blueplate will be serving its Just Peachy menu with peaches from Holtzhauser Farms. Are their peaches any good?

Good?  How about 2012 Governors Cup Award good?

blueplate’s Just Peachy dinner will be a three-course meal for $25 per person. One of the menu items is a chilled buttermilk and white peach soup, which sounds absolutely scrumptious.

If you get to either location (or both – I’m not one to put limits on anyone), let us know!
