Like most fruit, pears come in a heap of different varieties. Growing up, I used to have a real aversion to them. Nowadays, I enjoy crunchy, crisp pears as a snack but my favourite way to eat the curvy-shaped Autumn fruit, is to have it with something else of a different flavour. That’s the great thing about pears; they lend themselves to being the perfect partner. A few favourite combinations come to mind... pear and dark chocolate, pear and blue cheese, pear and whisky, pear and ginger, pear and vanilla, pear and almond… the list is endless!

Tuck into some of these delicious recipes for maximum pear punch!

1. Rooibos roasted pears

2. Pear and blue cheese tortilla pizza

3. Pear cake with salted caramel sauce

4. Avocado, Savoy cabbage, pear and cranberry salad
