Word Of The Day: Melba

Like ice cream? That's a rhetorical question, by the way. No matter what toppings you choose to load on, there's just nothing like melba, especially when it's hot out.

Melba is a dessert sauce made from pureed and crushed frozen raspberries or peaches, mixed with currant jelly, cornstarch and sugar. The French topping is typically poured over vanilla ice cream, but the fun doesn't have to stop there. Any dessert improved with fruit will get along famously with this concoction. We know a place in Melbourne doing it right.
