This classic combination of sharp raspberries and juicy ripe peaches with a hint of vanilla hardly needs an introduction. It is said to have been invented by the great chef Auguste Escoffier for the soprano Dame Nellie Melba, who loved ice cream but was concerned that the coldness might damage her voice. Escoffier solved this problem by serving the ice cream with fruit to diminish the coldness and in doing so, created one of the all time favorite ice cream desserts.
