Roasted Peach Melbas

Serves 8
Roasting Oven Environment


  • 4 freestone peaches, cut in half
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons dark brown sugar


  • 3 baskets fresh raspberries or 12 ounces of unsweetened frozen, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons water, if using fresh raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • Vanilla bean gelato


Place the peach halves, cut side up on a sheet pan. Place 1/2 teaspoon of butter and 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar in the well of each peach. Place into the oven and roast for about 10 minutes or until softened and beginning to brown. While the peaches are roasting, puree all of the sauce ingredients in the work bowl of a food process. Pulse until smooth. Push the sauce through a fine mesh strainer to remove seeds, set sauce aside. To serve, place peach in a decorative glass, top with a scoop of gelato and a drizzle of raspberry sauce.
