To further my creative ventures in the kitchen, this morning I had the poached pears with mascarpone I made last night. It was way too sweet for breakfast, but sooooo delicious. I made a syrup of H20, white wine, vanilla bean, and honey, then poached the pears in it, reduced and chilled it all. The cheese was whipped up with the syrup (after 8 hours of chilling) and a bit more sugar. It was truly amazing, and I was very proud of this success. I wish you could all taste it. This is certainly one to impress.
