For the parfait: Chop rosemary finely. Whisk egg yolks with lime blossom honey and forest honey in a bowl. Set on a hot water bath and beat until mixture thickens. Remove from the water bath and cool, stirring. Whip cream. Fold in cream and lemon zest into honey mixture. Pour into a mold and freeze for 4-5 hours.
For the gratin: Rinse peaches. Combine white wine, sugar, cinnamon, star anise and slit vanilla pod in a large pot and bring to a boil. Add peaches and simmer for about 6-8 minutes or until peaches become soft. Remove peaches with a slotted spoon.
