Pear and blue cheese tarts

Pear and blue cheese tarts

I need to eat more fruit. I buy it, with every intention of actually eating it, but usually, Stud eats it before it turns to mush in the fridge. There was a period there (pre-wedding) where we were eating a lot of fruit with yoghurt. Now that it’s getting a little colder, it’s harder to want for a cold dessert. So when the fabulous people at Australian Pears sent me a lovely box of pears along with a challenge “What can you pair with pears?”, I knew it had to be a warming dish and as per usual, something a little bit different. Whenever I think of pairs, I picture them fanned out over a thick wooden chopping board, next to some beautifully stinky blue cheese. This was my inspiration. Now, how to translate to dessert?

Bless me father for I have sinned, I have committed the cardinal sin of any food blogger……. Off to a girly dinner of cheese and wine, it was around 11am whilst performing a completely unrelated task at work that it struck me, no camera. Wait, what? No camera? But you are going out to dinner! I thought to myself, scalding myself in my head and probably looking quite blankly at my computer. Hopefully no one picked up on this as it might have scared my co-workers. Trying to think of ways to combat this catastrophe without A, costing too much money and B, still coming up with great quality pics. Nothing. So I apologise in advance for the quality of the pics as they were taken on my iPhone and we all know how the iPhone performs in low lit areas. Now on to my post – we arrived...
