Escoffier’s classic dessert was created for Australian singer Nellie Melba, but today it reaches new heights with grilled peaches. Grilling creates a naturally caramelized sugar and amazing flavor in this simple, wonderful treat.

- Cook raspberries, rum and sugar over low heat till sugar is dissolved. Purée in food processor; strain, transfer to bowl and chill.
