Roast peaches with Hoegaarden ice-cream

"I had a great dinner at the Four in Hand bistro in Paddington where I had the most excellent dessert of roast peach with Hoegaarden ice-cream. The combinationof the two was absolutely brilliant. Could you please ask chef Colin Fassnidge for the recipe? I'd love to share this with my family and friends."

Add peaches and turn to coat in caramel. Place in oven and roast for 10 minutes or until tender. Remove from oven, place over medium heat and add schnapps and butter. Continue cooking peaches, basting and turning, for 10 minutes or until peaches are golden. Serve peaches drizzled with warm syrup and Hoegaarden ice-cream to the side.
