There's a famous new guest on Downton Abbey this weekend (Sunday 6 October). The latest to regale the Granthams is Dame Nellie Melba, a real-life globally renowned Australian soprano, played by the equally lauded New Zealand soprano Dame Kiri Te Kanawa.
But that's not the only reason she's a star in our eyes. No. The delicious, summery, peach, raspberry and ice-cream dessert known as peach melba is named after her.
Since we would love for a dish to be named after us, we decided to investigate the other lucky folks who have sealed their name on a menu.
