Celebrating National Peach Melba Day!

According to both reliable sources and food bloggers, Monday, January 13th, is National Peach Melba Day. My first thought was this would make a great excuse to repost our version; but then I had another more disturbing thought...why was a recipe featuring the quintessential  summer fruit being celebrated in the middle of winter? Any ideas?

Anyway, I've worked at more than one establishment that served this using canned peaches, so don't let that peaches aren't in season thing stop you from enjoying this oddly-timed food holiday. Click here to read the original post and see the full recipe. Enjoy!

Chef John, what do you think about adding some almond extract to the peach poaching liquid?

It is summer in Australia, where Nellie Melba is from.

Nelly Melba was Australian, and it's peach season there now!Let's all go Down Under and enjoy some peaches instead of shovelling snow.

Yes it most certainly IS summer here in Australia right now, and what a scorcher it is at the moment. Where I am we're up to our 5th straight day of temperatures between 105° and 114° fahrenheit! Dame Melba was from Australia so I imagine that is why Peach Melba day is celebrated in January.
