Pear patchwork pie

Check out this impressive pear pie recipe with sugar-topped flaky pastry. This easy dessert is packed with vibrant chunky rhubarb and seasonal pears, a perfect family pudding.

Author Stuart Ovenden says “It’s impossible to forget a stargazy pie if you’ve ever seen one. Cornish in origin, it’s a traditional savoury dish of baked sardines, eggs and potatoes, complete with fish heads poking through the pastry to (supposedly) look up wistfully at the stars. Oddly enough, it’s the inspiration for this dessert but without the sardines of course. In my sweetened version, pears have the astronomical inclination – I love the way that the rhubarb dyes the plump base of each pear with a blush of pink.”

Winter-spiced pear cocktail

A minty fresh mojito no longer seems appropriate at this time of year and yet glass after glass of mulled wine can be a bit much. This winter-spiced pear cocktail bridges that gap perfectly, it’s light but the warming spices of star anise and cinnamon and the silky texture you get from the egg white make it a great seasonal alternative.
