Let’s be honest, preparing for a dinner party can be daunting, what with the endless appetizers and assortment of aperitifs. So to make your life easier, we’re sharing a two ingredient treat that is guaranteed to impress even the most discerning dinner guests, and will give you enough time to enjoy a glass of Rubis Chocolate Wine before everyone arrives.
Pears, peeled, allow for one per person
1 bottle of Rubis Chocolate Wine
1 tbsp crème fraiche, to serve per person
Take your pick of the most sumptuous pears you can find, allow for one per person. Peel the pears leaving the stalk intact, cutting a small slice from the bottom so the pears can stand tall when they’re served.
Pour a bottle of Rubis Chocolate Wine into a large saucepan then lower in the pears until all of them are completely encased in wine.
Poach the pears, covered, simmering over low-medium heat for about 1 hour, or until they are beautifully tender and a divine ruby red colour.
Carefully set aside the poached pears for 5 minutes and serve with a dollop of crème fraiche and a drizzle of Rubis Chocolate Wine straight from the pan.
Relaxed, charming, creamy … and simply smooth.
