Wine suggestion – I love this dish with an Alsatian or Australian dry Reisling, or else a cool climate Pinot Noir, such as one from Oregon, Burgundy or New Zealand. Simple, rustic with sweet and sour notes, this pork dish is best when peaches are at their peak. If out of season, try with pears, apples or figs. It’s also great with duck breast!
