National Peach Melba Day

On January 13, we celebrate National Peach Melba Day, providing the perfect opportunity to savor this delicious and uncomplicated dessert.

The delightful Peach Melba was ingeniously crafted by Auguste Escoffier, the chef at the Savoy Hotel. He concocted this dessert in tribute to the Australian soprano Nellie Melba, who was set to perform Wagner's Lohengrin opera at Covent Garden in 1892. Escoffier's presentation of the dessert was equally captivating—he placed it on an intricate swan ice sculpture and adorned it with spun sugar.
