A delightful tale of the magical power of food. Simply Irresistible stars Sarah Michelle Gellar as Amanda Shelton, a young chef who inherited her mother's restaurant and is fighting to keep it alive. After the arrival of a fairly suspicious crab Amanda's culinary talents soar and she is able to create food that moves people to tears, jeers, love and laughter.

Amanda's magical cooking talents are soon noticed by Tom Bartlett, a young, successful department store executive played by Sean Patrick Flanery. Tom gives Amanda her first catering job and their relationship blossoms into a magical menagerie of food and fashion.

One of the many mouth-watering recipes in Simply Irresistible includes a custard stuffed peach and our own Yumologists have been agble to recreate Amanda's recipe with the same mystical flavors that enchant us throughout the movie. Our recipe is below:

Custard Stuffed Peach

1 fresh, somewhat firm peach.
1 packet of custard (we recommend Bird's British)
2 tbsp honey mixed with 2 tbsp of butter (stir together until honey-butter smooth)
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 mint sprig for garnish

  • Cut the top of the peach off and core out the pit. Be sure to leave enough meat along the inner lining of the peach that it holds up to baking.
  • Drizzle a layer of honey butter around the inside of the peach.
  • Sprinkle brown sugar along the inner lining of the peach on top of the honey-butter
  • Bake the prepared peach in a 350 degree over for 10 minutes
  • Remove peach and immediately add hot custard
  • Sprinkle the top of the peach with brown sugar and add a mint sprig for garnish.
  • Eat and enjoy!
