pear on toast with ricotta and a hot honey sauce

A brilliant brunch for pear lovers.


Serves 2

  • 2 slices of white sourdough 
  • One pear
  • 4 tablespoons of honey
  • A few tablespoons of butter
  • A tub ricotta 
  • A teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • A handful of walnuts toasted then chopped


Slice the pears into thin slices. On a medium heat melt a tablespoon of the butter and gently sauté the pear slices till tender, how long will depend on how ripe they are, transfer to a plate.

Pour the honey, vanilla and a tablespoon of butter into the pan and gently cook till the honey is frothing  for a few minutes. Meanwhile toast the bread and butter it. Spread the ricotta on the bread (about quarter of an inch thick) and lay the pears on top. Spoon the hot honey over the top and sprinkle with the toasted walnuts. Serve straight away.
