    I remember my first time trying lychee, it was last year in a restaurant in Chicago’s Chinatown and my bf’s mother insisted that I eat them since she bought them from the Thai grocery like hours before. It was so good!! I love that you added them with a cobbler, it’s such a perfect Asian fusion :)

      Bahah oh my gosh I love that she insisted in the restaurant — that cracks me up!! Thank you so much for the sweet words, Erica :)

      Ooh, I can’t wait to hear what you think when you try one! It’s so hard to describe how they taste, but they’re amazing.

    Omg I love love love lychees!!! I can’t believe you put them in a cobbler with white nectarines though -what a great combination!!! I can just imagine how absolutely delicious this tastes…
    Although you’ve probably heard this a million times by now, CONGRATULATIONS lady for getting married!!!!! :DDD Your wedding looked absolutely awesome!!!!
    And your photos! I love the moodiness of it -I can never shoot photos like that!

    The Reluctant Office Door…sounds like a book title :-) This cobbler looks just so lovely. I really enjoy Erika’s writing from Southern Souffle and I think I will try this soon! I like the individual dishes too :-)

    This looks so good!! I have a similar memory – lychee has always been the summer to-be-eaten-in-china fruit. Those sweltering, humid days were always made better with a bowl of lychees. I’ve never had them cooked/baked before – how did they taste compared to fresh one? I wish I lived closer to NY – I just made a batch of lychee peach ice cream that I think you’d love!!!!! The floral tones perfectly compliment stone fruit, doesn’t it? :)

    First time I had lychees was close to 20 years ago in China. I loved them so much I ate a whole lot and woke up the next morning to one of the worst allergic reactions of my life! I was so embarrassed to show my face in front of my now husband but only a big crush back then. Turned out the reaction was to a medication I was taking and not lychees. Whew! I was relieved because I didn’t want to give them up. :-) Gorgeous photos and a lovely recipe, Cynthia. Welcome back.

    Welcome home, Mrs. Bowl!! These cobblers are absolutely stunning! You have me feeling mighty inspired, I might need to head home from work *cough* sick *cough* and fire up the oven. 😉 XO

    in love with this combination of nectarines and lychees all up in a cobbler no less! lychees totally bring me back to the mid-2000s where every bar in the city was serving up swanky lychee martinis! i was smitten back then, their texture and sweet flavor was so unmistakable, so I can just imagine how well that pairs up with nectarines! hope you two are settling back in and are enjoying calling each other husband and wife! xo!

    These photos are making me weak in the knees! I just love those pops of red, green and browned cobbler tops together, so dreamy!!! I hope your transition back to real life gets easier and that door jamb stops being a jerk. The main door to our office gets stuck when the sun shines on it, so I end up having to kick it as I turn the key in the summer, oy. I just keep telling myself, at least it’s sunny! :)

    What a beautiful recipe. Thanks for explaining the difference between these fruits. I always see them at fairway and thought they were similar. I’m so glad your honeymoon was everything and more and that you brought a piece of your own culture to a classic American-seeming recipe. Welcome back. I love the line about your office not wanting you back as much as you didn’t want o be back. I know the feeling :) xo!

    Yay for the newlyweds (and carbs!!) AND THIS COBBLER! I love love love lychee, so to see it in dessert form and photographed so stunningly is a real treat. Glad to see you back in the blog world, Cynthia! xx

    Gahhhhh love lychee! Really dislike peeling them! 😛 But this cobbler looks and sounds soooo…..poifect. Lychee is my favorite topping on frozen yogurt too, so I know it goes really well with traditional American flavors as well. And once again, congratulations and hope you have a lovely week <33

    You had me at hello! This line was so great “…my office door now sticks in the door jamb and appears as reluctant to let me in as I am to enter.” There are SO many great recipes to be found online and so few unique, riveting voices behind the recipes. I am so excited I found your blog. I can’t wait to see what else you are creating. Nectarine and lychee cobbler!? Just great!

    So happy to be reading a new TRB’s post!! Welcome back! Lychee is easily my favorite fruit; they’re also so good from a can :p This is my first New England summer (I’m from California)… I am going to make a bold statement and say that this humid, wet summer is more difficult to bear than the harsh winter. Please tell me it gets better!

    I think I’ve only ever had lychees in cocktails (which probably says more about my drinking habits than anything…) but I’m so intrigued by the idea of using them in a cobbler, especially in combination with fragrant nectarines <3 <3 <3

    Welcome home from your honeymoon, Cynthia! It was fun to see your pictures here and on IG and made me so jealous of your time there! I wish I could have come along in your suitcase (third wheel much?). I’ll settle for a slice of this cobbler though – I’ve never baked with lychees before, but my husband lovvvveess them, so I’m looking forward to pairing them with some ripe stone fruit for him! Thanks for the constant inspiration.

    Dreamy just dreamy. I am soooo in love with this. You had me at white nectarine and then you went and threw lychees in there and made all my dreams come true. SOO happy to have you back!! Also, I think I’ve shared your Japan post with everyone I know. OBSESSED.

    I am thrilled to have found this recipe as I love stone fruits and lychees are quite possibly my favorite fruit ever. They are in my oven now – I cannot wait to try them!

    I was expecting you to say that your office door wouldn’t open because of the huge piles of work waiting for you! Hopefully that wasn’t the case! These cobblers are beautiful, Cynthia. I would’ve never thought to use lychee in baking! This is why you’re brilliant.

say hello!
