I love this salad – it's so simple. It's based on one that was cooked for me by the brilliant Jean-Georges Vongerichten at his New York restaurant, Perry Street. The flavour and juicy sweetness you get from a grilled ripe peach, or pear for that matter, served bravely and simply next to a crunchy single leaf salad of frisée or curly endive, are perfection. Especially with the creamy dressing. You might feel as if you're being a little bit wasteful when you're preparing this lettuce because the key to making it successfully is to remove and discard all the dark green, ridiculously bitter outer leaves of the lettuces, as you only want to use the sweet, white, crunchy inner leaves.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
