Summer peaches. There’s a phrase that’s music to our ears – or should be. Sometimes a lush, juicy peach is hard to find. But you just might sink your teeth into a winning version today at a peach-tasting panel running from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Hashinger 103.
Chapman University’s food science program
was awarded a study grant by the
U.S. Department of Agriculture
, under the leadership of Chapman food science professors Anuradha Prakash, Ph.D., and Fred Caporaso, Ph.D. The grant application was led by Dr. Prakash, says Dr. Caporaso, and renews an old tradition to Chapman.
“We used to do a lot of taste and sensory testing. … Over the years we’ve taste tested everything from tacos to spaghetti sauce,” Caporaso says.
But today it’s peaches, and more tasters are needed. So head over, give an opinion and even enter the raffle for a $50 gift card.
And because we are so wild about peaches, we have to mention that
has a copy of one of the best books ever written on the subject,
Epitaph for a Peach
by David Mas Masumoto. And they have a copy of
James and the Giant Peach
by Roald Dahl. Now we’re really on a roll. Any more peachy suggestions?
