Combine the sugar, wine, water and lemon rind in a small, deep saucepan. Stir over a medium heat to dissolve the sugar.

Add the pears to the saucepan, ensuring that they are covered with the cooking liquid.

Allow to boil gently for 30-40 minutes until the pears are tender when pierced.

Transfer the pears to a place and leave to cool.

Increase the heat and boil the syrup for a further 20 minutes to reduce. Set aside to cool.

Place the chopped chocolate in a small bowl. Heat the cream until it is just about to reach boiling point.

Pour the cream over the chocolate and allow it to stand for a minute. Whisk until smooth.

Serve the pears warm or cold with a few spoons of syrup and lashings of chocolate sauce.
