I just heard some hints about an intriguing recipe on Milk Street Radio's podcast today,
August 5, 2022.
It was a recipe someone's grandmother made, and one of the hosts mentioned a similar
recipe in an old church cookbook or such. I didn't quite understand, but there is a
layer of fruit, a glass or ramekin in the middle that will collect the juices by a
vacuum process, and a layer of biscuit dough or similar on the top.
Thank you for any information you can provide.
Not having a name for the recipe or for the process and never having heard of such a thing, I did not have any success with this.
There is a website at: Listen Notes
On that site, you can listen to all of the past "Milk Street Radio" podcasts. They aren't dated, so I was temporarily stumped as to which one was from August 5. However, I took the chance that it was the most recent one, titled "Pro Secrets of Homemade Pasta: Missy Robbins Tells All". Experimenting a bit, I found that I could fast forward through it without having to listen to the entire podcast, and at about 41.50 into the podcast, I found the conversation that you are referring to. The caller only had a description of what he saw, not an actual recipe. The co-host seemed convinced that the dish was a fruit cobbler and she recalled something similar. She was not convinced, however that collecting the juices in such a manner actually contributed anything to the dish except for "show."
I can't think of any method that I can use to search my usual sources for such a recipe without the name of the recipe or else a unique term for the process described.
I will post this in the event that one of my readers might recognize the dish and be able to contribute. They can listen to the gentleman's description and the co-host's response at the above website. As I said, the podcast is called "Pro Secrets of Homemade Pasta: Missy Robbins Tells All", and the conversation with the caller is at about 42 minutes into the podcast, plus or minus 5 to 10 seconds.

Not being one to give up too easily, I kept searching and I found a recipe called "Peach Puzzle" that fits the description.
