Everybody knows eating sweets is not one of my sins, but how can you resist Margot’s delicious poached pear chocolate puddings?!? This dessert is tantamount to a work of art and will impress even the most demanding among your dinner guests.
We could not have asked for a better treat to end our Winter menu!
Enjoy the weekend!
By this stage of the Dinner Party you should be feeling totally relaxed, especially in the knowledge that your beautiful little desserts have been totally prepped and are almost ready to go. So sit back, enjoy the flowing conversation, have another sip of that gorgeous wine… the oven will do the rest of the work for you.
Poaching pears is such a lovely way of celebrating this seasonal winter fruit. The spices I’ve used in the poaching syrup are some of my personal favourites… though feel free to adapt as you wish. Cardamom, cloves, allspice, ginger and citrus peel all go wonderfully too. With a dollop of cream or ice cream, poached pears can be a delicious dessert in their own right, but by taking them that one step further by surrounding them in a rich dark chocolate pudding, it lifts them to new heights.
We truly hope you’ve enjoyed…
