Pears and Pecorino

Few desserts are as naturally sophisticated as fruit paired with cheese. The honey and ground pepper complete the marvelous quartet of sweet and pungent flavors.

Pears and Pecorino

Source: Desserts 1998


  • 1/2 pound pecorino cheese
  • 4 Comice pears, cored and sliced
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Slice cheese thinly, and divide among four plates. Place pears on top of cheese. Warm honey, and drizzle it over pears. Top with a grind of pepper.

Cook's Note

Pecorino, a hard, aged Italian cheese made from sheep's milk, works especially well with ripe, juicy Comice pears. If you can't find pecorino, substitute another hard cheese, like Parmesan.
