Author Notes: A fond memory I have of my late granny was eating lemony poached pears with generous dollop of ice cream. I decided to develop a recipe dedicated to the feeling I used to get while eating that. Chiara Turilli

For the grilled pears,

  • 8 Forelle Pears, halved

  1. For the grilled pears, add the apple halves, water and brown sugar to a sauce pan.
  2. Lightly poach the pears for 5 minutes, until the edges are slightly soft.
  3. Drain the pears in a sieve making sure to get rid of all the water.
