January 13 is National Peach Melba Day. It is a perfect day to indulge yourself in this tasty and simple dessert.

Peach Melba is a great and simple dessert invented by Auguste Escoffier, the Savoy Hotel's chef. He cooked peach Melba in honor of Australian soprano Nellie Melba, who was to perform Wagner's Lohengrin opera at Covent Garden in 1892. Escoffier used a very interesting way to present his dessert. He put it on a swan ice sculpture and topped with spun sugar.
