cheese! Say (in Italian...)
Serves 6 2 ripe pears Olive oil ½tsp golden caster sugar 20g (½oz) pecorino cheese A few fresh bay leaves Peel, quarter or halve the pears (depending on size) and scoop out the cores with a spoon — they work best if they’re nice and ripe. Place a griddle pan over a mediumhigh heat, add the pears and griddle until soft and charred, turning occasionally. Place in an ovenproof gratin dish.
Drizzle with a little olive oil and a sprinkling of sugar, for extra sweetness. Shave over the pecorino and lay the bay leaves on top, if you like. Grill for a few minutes, or until the cheese melts. Makes a lovely starter with walnut bread.
