It's Flathead cherry season in Montana, and the Food Guys are on a cherry clafouti kick.  "If you have access to Flathead cherries, now is one of those moments in your year that will only last a few weeks," urges Food Guy, Jon Jackson. Clafouti, the simple French dessert, features a custard base topped with fresh cherries and it's perfect for late July and early August.

Food Guy Jon Jackson tries out New York Times writer Melissa Clark's apple-barley "get together"  and declares it delicious.  Clark's risotto-esque recipe was inspired, but not limited by, the kosher cooking of her grandmother, Ella, who cooked "the greatest hits of Jewish cuisine.  She could simmer up a tender matzo ball and some succulent pot roast, but I doubt she ever met a barley pilaf, let alone thought of making one herself."

After hearing 'cherry babka' mentioned in a play, Greg Patent was intrigued. Could there be an apple version as well? He looked through all of his cook books, and when he couldn't find any, Patent decided to invent one. From Greg and Dorothy Patent's 1999 book, "A Is for Apple," here's how to make apple babka.
