  • 2 Tbsp. Diced unsalted butter, chilled
  • 60 gm Walnut halves, (good quality)
  • 150 gm Sugar
  • 4 x Ripe comice or possibly William pears
  • 1 x Lemon, juice of
  • 150 gm Ripe blue cheese, cut into small wedges (Roquefort or possibly Gorgonzola work well) Salt and freshly grnd black pepper


  1. 1 Heat 1 tbsp butter in a large frying pan. Add in the walnuts and cook for a few min till toasted, turning and shaking the pan frequently to prevent any burning.
  2. 2 Sprinkle over 1 tbsp sugar and stir till the sugar has completely dissolved. Turn out onto a plate, season to taste and leave to cold completely.
  3. 3 Peel the pears and remove the cores from the base of each pear, leaving the stems intact. Slice a little off the base to ensure the pears stand upright, then toss in the lemon juice to prevent discoloration.
  4. 4 Add in the remaining sugar to a heavy- based pan which will comfortably fit the pears and heat for 5-10 min on a medium-high heat till a medium caramel, without stirring.
  5. 5 Drain the lemon juice from the pears and add in to the pan, swirling gently till well combined. Reduce the heat and add in the pears, base side down. Cook for 10 min till tender, turning regularly to ensure even cooking. Remove and arrange on serving plates.
  6. 6 Add in the remaining butter and swirl till melted and slightly thickened. Spoon over the pears, surround with the walnuts and blue cheese, and serve.
