A Peach Dish

A Peach Dish

Delaware white peach compote with home made plum wine with tomato and red wine sherbet.



Peaches have a very rich, sweet, supple flavor and loved by most people around the world. The peach is harvested in the summer and the perfect time to compose a dish with the fruit.

1. The peaches are peeled by a chef very gently
2. They are stewed with a homemade plum wine (without being overcooked)
3. The peaches are placed into a summer glass dish and topped with the tomato and red wine sherbet
4. Finally, the dish is garnished with a small edible flower

It's a very crisp summer dish with a subtle sweetness that completes the meal.
