This dessert is unbelievable. There, I said it, unbelievable. It's beautiful in it's presentation, and stunning in taste. You can truly taste each of the ingredients in this dish. That's how I like to cook: I want each ingredient to stand out, as a unique component to a more complex whole. Make this. Then you'll make it again. And again. If you're worried about the flavor of roses, get over it. This dish does not taste like perfume. It is soft and sweet.
It's been really hard for me to record this recipe. Sometimes when I create something I really like, I prefer to keep the recipe a secret. But some secrets are just too good to share. If you're reading this, consider yourself very lucky. Love, hannah
Total Time: 45 minutes
For the Rose Cream:
1 cup whole raw cashews, soaked at least 1 hour
1 ORGANIC (non-sprayed!) red or pink rose, de-flowered, i.e. petals removed and set aside
2 tbsp agave
2 teaspoons rosewater
a few tbsp of water
1. In a high-speed blender or food processor, combine ingredients and blend until you have reached a smooth consistency.
You may need to add more water, a tablespoon at a time, to achieve the desired texture. Be patient, your cream will be silky!
2. Chill in the refrigerator at least one hour.
For the peaches:
2 ripe peaches, halved and pitted

1 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tbsp coconut oil

2. Combine the ingredients for the crumble. It should be sticky.
3. Put the peaches, cut side up, on a sheet pan. Divide the crumble mixture over the tops of the peaches.
4. Place peaches in the oven under the broiler for about 3-5 minutes, or until the tops begin to caramelize. Be sure to keep an eye on your peaches!
For the Garnish:
3 fresh figs, halved
1 teaspoon pink peppercorns, crushed
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1. Arrange one peach half on each plate. Place a dollop of the chilled rose cream on top. Arrange three fig halves on the plate.
