3 tbs brown sugar
200ml of verjuice
30ml extra virgin olive oil
15 grinds pepper
6 sprigs thyme
1 sheet rough puff pastry (I use Careme Pastry, it is the best).
150 g piece quality gorgonzola or Stilton cheese.
100g quality walnuts, toasted and while warm tossed in EV olive oil.
Salt and pepper
2 handfuls fresh salad greens, such as curly endive, witlof or watercress, to serve.

Directions:
​Preheat oven to 200 C fan-forced or 220C conventional.
In a medium roasting dish, add the pears and sprinkle over the sugar, verjuice and olive oil.
Grind over the pepper and scatter over the thyme.
Roast for 20 minutes or until a little golden. Allow to cool.
Roll out the pastry to no more than 5mm thick. Trim to a large rectangle (use the trimming to decorate the edges).
Top with the roast pears.
Bake for 20-25 mins, or until puffed and golden.
Crumble on the gorgonzola while still warm, drop on the walnuts, drizzle over some of the pear baking juices.
Serve with the salad greens on the side.
