OK, OK so I win no prizes for my food photography!
I promise it tastes far better than it looks in this picture so any food photography tips gratefully received!
One of my New Year’s Resolutions
is to research and cook one new recipe each week.
This weeks recipe “Savoury Pear Delight” was kindly supplied by “Knight” a fellow Expat in Portugal. The sweet pear and the blue cheese made an interesting combination to tease Piglet’s taste buds. The verdict; absolutely delicious and so quick to prepare!
Savoury Pear Delight
1 Ripe Dessert Pear
Danish Blue Cheese
Philadelphia Soft Cream Cheese (or similar)
2 lettuce leaves
Juice of 1 lemon
pinch of paprika.
Take the ripe pear and remove skin. Cut in half. Remove core.
squeeze lemon juice on pear to prevent going brown.
Place on flat dish on top of lettuce leaf
Fill core with generous portion of blue cheese.
Mix soft cheese to creamy consistency with milk and pour over filled pear
Put a pinch of paprika on top.
ENJOY – it is a great starter for a dinner party!
