“Individual ice cream filled peach & berry tarts. Quick to make but they need to freeze for 4-6 hours so plan ahead. Freezer time not included in cook time. A little trivia about peach melba - the famous London chef Escoffier was once so moved by Nellie Melba's performance in Wagner's Lohengrin that he took up his pans and ice cream maker to create a dessert, both simple and elegant, in honour of the Australian soprano.”
