Peach Melba and Raspberry-Cassis Ice Cream

French Fridays
Around My French Table

Before we officially say goodbye to summer, I was happy to make this Peach Melba and Raspberry-Cassis Ice Cream. It was a lovely summer dessert and one we would like to repeat.

Peach Melba is named for the famed opera singer Nellie Melba. It is comprised of poached peaches which are flavored with sugar, lemon zest, vanilla bean and Chambord. I have never poached a peach before but the results were delicious. I made Dorie's Bonne Idee with the raspberry ice cream. Mine is flavored with Chambord as that is the liquor I had on hand. I did not make the raspberry sauce since I had raspberry ice cream but I did serve with her suggested whipped cream, fresh raspberries and sliced almonds. It all worked so well together. Au Revoir summer.
