The chocolate pear tart sounds heaven! You'll have to share the recipe when you've tested it.

I'd have to check my books to find pear recipes, but off-hand I'd suggest pear crumble for something easy. I've also had a divine pear cake which had almond meal in it (but I haven't got a recipe) - worth googling, I reckon...

There is Pear and Ginger Cake!
I can't find the recipe at the moment but I love the Pear and Ginger Cake at the Hominy(I think that is how you spell it) Bakery in Katoomba.

I've given you an award. Check out my last post for details.

I always eat my pears raw but that pear and chocolate tart sounds fab - do post the recipe when you get a chance.

I don't think you can go past a poached pair myself and my mum used to put them into preserve jars and we'd eat them all winter. There's a great red wine and pear recipe in my old MF book - I'll email it to you!

oh yeah that pear and ginger cake from Hominy is HEAVENLY!! A friend brought me a piece to work and it was lovely so I bought a whole cake to take to my inlaws and it was a hit!!

Pears go very well simmered with red wine. They go a lovely pink colour. Just add a little sugar and pop them whole but unpeeled into the oven at no more than 180 degrees until they are cooked,
