Just William…

Pears can be tricky, of that there is little doubt. There are times when they can just fuck off -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVTDwq2q3Ak – but that time was not this afternoon. The pear on my plate, by the name of William, could not have been better behaved having reached that perfect moment of ripeness which state, in a pear, is undetectable from the outside giving truth to the maxim that beauty is only skin deep as there is no way to judge if it is pleasure or disappointment, sweet flesh or decaying mush, that lays beyond that thin epidermis. Today I had sweet flesh. which I relished whilst waiting for the flesh of William’s chums to transform themselves into an excellent cake.

    Are you just trying to tease us with that cake photo and then not hand over the recipe?

  6. I’m with Francesca.. recipe? I love a thin fruity cake. Incredible photographs.

  7. Are there grinded almonds in this lushious pear teaser?

    My father likes this kind of pears and he has got plenty of trees in his orchard. I always look forward to the harvest. They are really delicious.
