4 mins


7 mins


4 slices




  • 1 ripe peach
  • 40g butter
  • 4 slices of good bread
  • 175g girolle mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 1½ tbsp creme fraiche
  • 8 slices of prosciutto


Halve and de-stone the peach. Then cut each half into slices, as thick or thin as you like.

Heat the butter in a frying pan and when it is just about bubbling sit the peach slices in. Give them a couple of mins, turn when nicely browned, and cook for a couple of mins more. Lift the slices out and set aside.

Put the bread on to toast.

Return the frying pan to the heat and add the mushrooms, slicing any that are especially large. Cook for a few mins, add salt and the sherry vinegar, and then just when the mushrooms are nearly cooked spoon in the creme fraiche. Remember all the while to keep an eye on the toast.

Pile up your toasts: begin with 2 slices of prosciutto on each, then spoon over the girolles and juices, sit the peaches slices on top, and finish with a hefty grinding of black pepper.
