Match of the week
White peaches and Muscat de Frontignan
Last week we were in the south of France where, bizarrely, it wasn't as hot as it's been in England the past couple of days. One night we went round for supper at a neighbour's who served the simplest and most delicious dessert of white pèches de vigne with chilled Muscat de Frontignan splashed over them.
I imagine the two had been macerated together for a while as you couldn't really tell where the wine ended and the peach juice began but it was absolutely delicious.
The only snag is that it's pretty hard to get peaches that are ripe and juicy enough to pull this trick in the average UK supermarket, Marks and Spencer's possibly apart but you should be able to find them at a decent greengrocer's. Or if you're on holiday in France or Italy - or anywhere else where peaches get properly ripe - do try it there.
