Food is considered by the French to be one of life’s greatest pleasures, and author Béatrice Peltre celebrates that with her beautiful blog and cookbooks. In her latest cookbook, My French Family Table, she definitely takes advantage of spring and summer produce to make gorgeous salads and desserts. Here’s a unique take on the traditional en papillote, but turning it into a stunning dessert instead.

From the Author: “Use the same technique as for a savory papillote but add sweet ingredients instead; the result is something irresistible. This papillote uses a medley of luscious summer fruit that, once the parchment paper is torn open, displays a palette of bright colors that is completely seductive. I love it served with a scoop of lavender-infused ice cream melting slowly right in the middle.”
