A Sultry Dance of Pears and Cheese

I’m happy to announce that I will now be a regular contributor to Gastronomic Meditations. I will be presenting recipes and writing columns about the monthly featured ingredients from an international perspective.

My first contribution is a celebration of the sultry dance between pears and cheese, this month’s main ingredient and the indulgence. I make a playful switch, though, and use cheese as the base, turning the main ingredient, pears, into a sweet indulgence.

    Mark, just found out about Elise’s post on “quince” jelly. It is great step by step recipe with photos…You can find it here: http://www.elise.com/recipes/archives/001455quince_jelly.php

    Thanks, Melissa! I checked it out. Nice recipe. It differs from the “carne de membrillo” in that the Spsnish use the pulp to give body to the paste, and they really are preserving the fruit. In this jelly recipe, you’re producing a finer jelly with the taste and aroma of quince, without the mass of the fruit.

    Thanks for directing me to your podcast. I really enjoyed it! It made me think of a couple other great food movies: Mostly Martha, Delicatessen and Queen of Hearts.

    Btw, I just added your site to my links section. I’ll be coming back more often.
