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."

  • For Hoegaarden ice-cream, combine cream, milk, sugar and egg yolks in a saucepan, and whisk until smooth. Stir over medium heat until mixture is thick and coats the back of a wooden spoon, remove from heat. Squeeze excess water from gelatine, add to cream mixture and whisk until gelatine dissolves. Cool for 1 hour. Add beer, whisk to combine, strain mixture and freeze in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Store in freezer until needed. Makes about 1.8 litres.

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.
