Corella Pears with Truffle Honey and Gorgonzola

Pears cooked wth truffle honey, brandy and Gorgonzola

Directions

In a large microwave and ovenproof dish mix the truffle honey, herbs, salt, pepper and brandy and microwave for about 15 seconds or until the honey has melted.

Cut the pears in half and using a teaspoon, scoop out the seeds leaving a small cavity. Toss the pears in the truffle honey mixture making sure you’ve coated both sides. Turn the halves face down and leave to soak for about 20 minutes.

Once they’ve finished marinading, place about 1/2 teaspoon of gorgonzola into each pear’s cavity and put them back into the dish with the truffle honey mixture.

(If you’d like to make these ahead of time, cover the pears with clingfilm and place them in the fridge for a few hours until ready to bake.)

Put your pears in a preheated oven at 180 and cook until the cheese is starting to colour and the pears have become slightly tender – about 6-8 minutes depending on your oven.

Once they’re ready, arrange them on a plate and drizzle the syrup over the pears and finally, tastefully scatter them with thyme leaves and pomegranate seeds! And to quote Jamie Oliver “Happy days!”
