I wanted a taste that was purely luxurious.  At its core, this is technically only one step up from fruit and cream, but what makes it stand apart from that classic combination is the substitution of fromage blanc and the addition of a heady, aromatic spiced honey sauce.

Fromage blanc which translates to “white cheese” is a much beloved dairy product in France.  It has a lush, silky texture similar to richer than yogurt but lighter than cream and without the tanginess of yogurt.  Peaks of billowy white fromage blanc are served alongside summer stone fruits like apricots, nectarines and peaches.

Drizzling the fresh summer fruit and fromage blanc with a subtle kiss of warm honey and spices like cinnamon and ginger is a truly sensuous way to enjoy dessert.  (This warm spiced honey with hints of ginger and cinnamonwould be lovely in tea as well.)

Talk about simplicity. (This recipe is part of my easy entertaining menu, see the full menu here.)

    Love how simple and beautiful this is Sylvie. You always capture the natural beauty of food so eloquently. We just started getting local peaches at the farmer’s market.
