Where's the fire?

Dragon fruit is dramatic and beautiful. The thick but tender skin - most commonly bright pink (but it can also be purple or yellow) has smooth, large 'scales', which give a clear indication of how the fruit got its name. The juicy flesh, which is dotted with edible black seeds, ranges from white to deep pink.

Fragrant, sweet and juicy, peaches have long been revered in China, where they are native.

Fortunately, although the season is fleeting, we don't have to wait that long and peaches are now in their prime.

Trapped feeling

'Ask him out,' commands my friend, Deeksha. I choke on my chocolate syrup-covered raspberry sorbet, his favourite.

These sultry days nothing beats a cooling sorbet, and if you have an ice-cream maker it is a snap to make. Home-made is much better than shop-bought: the latter tend to be far too sweet.

Sorbets can be made in many different flavours but the most popular are made from fruit.

Just Tasting

The latest seduction AN orgy of ice-cream, sorbet, fresh fruit, cakes and pastries, the sexiest dessert in town at the moment doesn't even have a name. Regulars at La Bodega, which serves the sweet, just call it 'The Platter'.
