Pearilicious

Autumn is my favourite time of year. Finally, out come the cozy corduroy trousers, knitted vests and scarves, and bike commutes that don’t make you all sweaty and give you helmet hair. But best of all are the autumn fruits and veggies. Apples, pears, pomegranates, persimmons, grapes, cauliflower, garlic, butternut squash and the rest.

To celebrate the season we poached some d’Anjou pears in a local Shiraz and served with a quenelle of mascarpone.

The results were scrumptious.

A Fig Tree for our Garden

Springtime is planting time and a Fig tree is the latest addition to our garden. This one is known as the Persian Prolific. It’s a “strong grower with mid-season fruit, light purple skin and honey coloured flesh” according to the cultural notes. We look forward to our first fruits!
