Poached Pear cooked in mulled wine, almond and olive oil cake, pear sorbet, rice paper
Cook time: 60min
Difficulty: medium
Serves: 4

Instructions:

Almond Cake

In a large mixing bowl add all of the dry ingredients. Add the oil, butter and eggs then mix to a think batter. Pour into a line/grease baking tray and cook for 160ᵒC for 50 minutes. Cool to room temperature before serving.

Poached pear

In a large saucepan put the wine, port, 200g sugar, vanilla, star anise, cinnamon, zest and cloves. Bring to the boil to burn the alcohol. Allow to stand off the heat for a couple of hours for the flavour to develop. Peel the pears, cut into quarters and remove the core. Place into the mulled wine and add gentle simmer until the pears are tender. Allow the pears to sit in the liquid for at least 24 hours so they absorb the cooking liquid.
