The closer we get to Spring on the calendar, the farther away it seems in some parts of the country. It is my dad’s birthday today, (see my past tribute) and in his part of the country kids are walking outside in their shorts, while in Toronto we are weathering yet another winter storm. Such is life in Canada’s largest city. On the plus side, Downton Abbey fans are happy to have a bit of Downton here for a visit.
Since I only publish one dish a week, today’s dish is a catch up recipe from Season 4. Peach Melba is a classic and simple dessert made of poached peaches, raspberry puree, and served on vanilla ice cream. On the other end of the scale, Melba toast is also named in her honor. Dieters are familiar with the thin baked toast, created for the opera singer to help when she gained weight later in her career.
