Here is a great dessert from the Chop House menu.


1.5 peaches, halved and de-stoned

10 crushed, unsalted cashew nuts (dry roasted in a pan), reserve some for garnish

50g créme fraiche 

1 tsp lemon zest

Juice of half a lemon 

10g caster sugar

1 tbsp blossom honey 

15ml calvados 


1. Char the halved peaches over coal for one minute either side. This can also be done under a grill.

2. Add the peaches to a hot pan with the calvados, honey and nuts. Turn regularly to ensure they are evenly coated and heated through.

4. Squeeze lemon juice over the mix and stir.

5. Arrange the peach segments on a plate. Mix the créme fraiche with the sugar and zest before lightly spooning over the peaches.

6. Deglaze pan with a splash of water and pour pan juices and crushed nuts over the dessert.
