Peach Flambé

Serves 2

Preparation Time 5 minutes

Cooking Time 5 minutes

Personal Note – It was my signature dish when I studied Gueridon Service (Trolley Service in a restaurant).

Tips – Let the recipe flow. Remove toasted almonds if you want the dish nut-free.

  • 60g caster sugar
  • 60g butter
  • 90ml peach juice
  • 50ml orange juice

  1. Heat pan over flame.
  2. Add sugar to pan and allow to commence caramelisation.
  3. Add butter to pan and mix with sugar.
  4. Add half the peach juice and half the orange juice. Stir juices to mix a consistent sauce with sugar and butter.
  5. Add peach halves to pan, turn peach halves and continue to stir sauce.
  6. Add peach liqueur to sauce, check consistency of sauce by adding more juice.
  7. Continue to stir sauce and turn peaches to ensure they have heated through properly and have a coating of sauce.
  8. Tilt pan back and heat front edge in preparation of adding the Southern Comfort.
  9. Add Southern Comfort and flambé.
