Fruity recipe from Athens
Today, we celebrate the culinary talents of Hermione, the author of the Greek blog The one with all the tastes. She made a delicious recipe of roasted peaches accompanied by ice-cream using our white chocolate with speculoos of the Gourmet Collection. Hermione shares with us the secrets of her recipe which will delight all the gourmets!
On your marks, get set, go! And let’s admit it… we are huge fans of “Pitch Perfect”, right?
Please don’t tell me that you don’t know what “Pitch Perfect” is! Anna Kendrick, the Barden Bellas and a surprisingly entertaining musical comedy!
My girls and I just love it! We watch it (and sing along to it of course) one or two times a month. During those two hours, my husband puts on his headphones and locks himself in his office, showing us his incredible patience.
“Pitch Perfect” always makes me think of peaches. Pitch- peach, it goes without saying. We recently watched a trailer for the third movie of the series and I thought that it was about time to make something fruity!
My first thought was to make a peach galette. The heat however discouraged me from turning on the oven and made me think of lighter desserts, so I decided to leave the peach galette for another day.
And prepared these grilled peaches instead. But, these are not your ordinary grilled peaches!
These are soft and caramelized, served with a delicious homemade ice cream and a crunchy nutty crumble!
For the ice cream we use honey and glucose syrup instead of sugar, as well as corn flour instead of eggs.
It requires an ice cream machine, but of course, if you don’t have one, you can simply stir the ice cream every 30 minutes for about 3 hours as it freezes in the freezer.
Now I understand that this ice cream may seem a bit “demanding” as it requires a certain amount of work in order to obtain a dreamy creamy texture.
However if you love the sweet and spicy cinnamon aroma, I am pretty sure that you will love this ice cream as well!
The crumble is optional of course, but in my opinion, don’t leave it out!
It’s delicious and creates an interesting mix of textures. It pairs perfectly with this ice cream. Or really, any kind of ice cream! Or with yoghurt! Or with nothing at all! Oh yes, you can perfectly eat it on its own!
Just before completing the preparation in the machine, I added pieces of white chocolate with speculoos from the Belgian chocolatier Planete Chocolat. Belgian!
A few days ago, I had the pleasure of receiving Planete Chocolat’s “Gourmet Collection”, which includes 7 different bars of chocolate. Ever since I have been very impatient and couldn’t wait to use at least one of them in a recipe.
Despite the hot weather and the elevated risk of them melting, I received the chocolates in excellent condition, since they were shipped in an isothermal package.
For the time being, we’ve tried the white chocolate with speculoos and we’ve really grown fond of it. Great aroma, a deep and very pleasant -somewhat childlike- taste and an after-taste that is light and long-lasting.
In fact, we loved it so much that someone (but who?!) took the last two pieces of chocolate that I had left on the kitchen counter-top in the hopes of photographing them, and secretly ate them!
