5:30 PM

Pêche Melba was created by famed chef Auguste Escoffier in 1892 for opera singer Nellie Melba after she performed in Wagner's opera Lohengrin at London's Covent Garden. The lovely Ms. Melba was staying at the Savoy Hotel in London and sent Escoffier a pair of tickets to come see her sing that night. To celebrate her triumph he prepared the dinner party the following night at the hotel, and for dessert he served poached peaches on ice cream in a dish set on a swan carved out of ice... A few years later, Escoffier opened the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in London where he added a sauce of puréed raspberries and named it Pêche Melba. The rest is history... Join us August 9th at 5:30pm in the Brodsky Gallery for a cooking class with Chef Philippe. $15 per person and includes a glass of paired wine. To reserve your spot, email Jennifer Burns.
