I started my career working for a caterer that prided itself on creating food that looked as good as it tastes. 16 years later that still resonates with me, especially when I’m entertaining. I like to make our guests feel special, even when I have limited time to prepare.
Poached peaches in white wine are nearly as easy to make as they are to present and they’re universally loved! The best ingredients make the best desserts and wine is no exception. It’s especially important for dishes that require just a few ingredients. I poach peaches in Cambria Chardonnay with a touch of vanilla and serve with mascarpone cream, providing a light, refreshing dessert.
Poached Peaches in White WIne
Cook time: 20 mins | Total time: 20 mins | Serves: 4
- 2 c Cambria Chardonnay
- 4 slightly ripe peaches
- Bring wine to a boil over medium heat in a pot just large enough for peaches.
- Wash peaches and remove stems. Reduce to low, add peaches, cover and simmer for 15 minutes, rotating them to ensure they completely soak.
- Remove from heat and allow to rest 30 minutes.
- Lightly pinch or squeeze peaches to pull skin, it should remove easily in 1-2 pieces.
- Drizzle a little sauce on top to plate and serve.
Poached peaches can even be made up to a day in advance for easy entertaining and pairs perfectly with steak in a pinot reduction.
