Friday 30 Jun 2006: PÍche Melba and Melba toast
The Australian opera soprano Dame Nellie Melba's name is associated with at least two "dishes": a dessert, the PÍche Melba, and Melba toast, both said to be created by the famous chef Auguste Escoffier. The dessert was specially created for her in 1892 or 1893; Melba toast was supposedly named after her when it was part of her diet some years later.
