Baked Gorgonzola-Pear

This is an idea, opposed to a recipe, for sprucing up a cheese platter and/or adding something with warmth. It is a brilliant idea for a dessert with a difference, if you and your company enjoy Gorgonzola cheese.

The amount of pears depend on what you want to do with it: one pear should serve 2 – 3 people if you are adding this to a cheese platter, whereas one pear per person will be needed if you are going the dessert route.

Gorgonzola cheese

Honey to drizzle the pears with

Two or three bamboo skewers per pear, for the baking process

Preheat your oven to 180℃.

Cut the pear into three horizontal pieces.

Place a slice of Gorgonzola cheese, about 0,5cm thick in between each of the pear slices.

Once you have reconstructed the pear with the Gorgonzola slices, gently pierce it with one or two bamboo skewers in order to keep everything intact.

Place the pears on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and is oozing out.

Transfer to a serving dish, remove the skewers and drizzle with honey.

Serve with fresh crusty bread.
