1
Preheat a water bath to 65°C
2
Slice the peaches in half, removing the stones, then place in a vacuum bag along with the toasted almonds and scraped vanilla pod. Seal the bag and cook the peach halves for 10–12 minutes in a water bath, until softened
  • 8 peaches
  • 20g of roasted almond
  • 1 vanilla pod, scraped
3
Meanwhile, prepare the peach caramel. Place a pan over a medium high heat and allow to heat up. Add the sugar gradually, stirring gently between each addition, until all the sugar has melted
  • 100g of Demerara sugar
4
Allow the sugar to cook until it forms a golden caramel, then slowly add the peach purée – this will create a lot of steam so take care. Bring the mixture back up to the boil, stirring well to ensure the caramel has fully dissolved
  • 200ml of peach purée, or peach juice
5
Remove the pan from the heat and gradually add the butter, whisking well until emulsified. Set the caramel aside, allowing to cool a little before serving
  • 50g of butter, cut into cubes
6
Remove the cooked peaches from the vacuum bag and leave to cool, face down, on a tray or plate
7
While the peaches are cooling, prepare the pain perdu. Cut the brioche loaf into 3cm thick slices, then cut out 8 rounds using a medium sized pastry cutter
  • 1 brioche loaf
8
Whisk together the egg yolks, sugar and double cream in a large mixing bowl. Add the brioche rounds to the bowl and soak well until most of the mixture has been absorbed
  • 150ml of double cream
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 20g of sugar
9
Place a large frying pan over a medium heat and add a spoonful of butter. Heat until foaming, then add the soaked brioche rounds – cooking in batches if necessary – and fry for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Once cooked, remove the pain perdu rounds from the pan and leave to drain on kitchen paper
  • 1 tbsp of butter, or more if cooking in batches
10
Before serving, whisk the cream until just beginning to stiffen and fold in the vanilla and sugar. Carefully peel the peaches and cut into chunks, discarding any pieces which no longer hold their shape
  • 500ml of double cream
  • 1 vanilla pod, scraped
  • 50g of icing sugar
11
To serve, place a piece of pain perdu on each plate and dust lightly with icing sugar. Drizzle over a generous serving of the peach caramel and arrange pieces of peach and fresh raspberries across the plate. Finish with a quenelle or two of the Chantilly cream, scattering over a handful of toasted almond flakes to serve
  • icing sugar
  • 150g of raspberries
  • flaked almonds, toasted
