Looking for a romantic dessert? You can't go past poached pears served with chocolate. It can even be made when the pears in the shops are not completely ripe.

Not all poached pears need to be done in wine; this recipe uses cranberry juice to get the wonderful red colours into this popular dessert.

I love pears, and I love this recipe, because lighting the rum caramelises the sugar, and pulls out the flavour of the pears. I use pear halves but you can try it with whole pears too.

Ideal for pear season this is a simple dessert that looks gorgeous with a little custard or cream. The poaching apple juice can be thickened and used as a sauce.

These are an unusual and very successful combination of flavours. Poached pears are filled with blue cheese and wrapped in bacon before being grilled.

Try this quinoa porridge for a warming winter breakfast. Rinse quinoa first, under cold running water, before using. This porridge has an added bonus of being gluten-free.
