Here is the short story. An amazing opera singer, Nellie Melba tastes the creations of a renowned French chef named Escoffier while performing in London. She sends him tickets to see her performance in the Wagner opera Lohengrin. Soon after, he presents her with this dish, now known as the Peach Melba, served on an ice swan inspired by the swan boat she performed in the night before.

There is a lot more to the story so click the link above to hear it all. Then head on out and get the ingredients to serve Peach Melba tonight. It would be a shame not to celebrate a legendary chef’s inspired combination of peaches, raspberries, and ice cream. This day, after all, comes only once a year!
