Archive for Sophie Dahl
Seeing a poster advertising the delectable chocolate pear pots (as seen above) at Tesco’s Real Food outlet and website today, has encouraged me to include another foody post. Especially as the blog stats suggest that one of the most popular bits of owlsandpears.com is the post about Sophie Dahl’s toffee apple and pear crumble. The recipe for this beauty of a dessert is extremely straightforward, but so as not to infringe any copyright, I am directing you straight to the relevant Tesco page for detailed instructions on how to put the ingredients together. And may I suggest my absolute favourite cocoa powder when you’re following the recipe? It HAS to be Green & Black’s.
If you’re looking for an alternative pear dessert, check out this recipe with the rather wonderful title of ‘Baked Pear Parcels with Lemon Chamomile Sauce‘ from the USA pears website (which, incidentally, includes loadsa pear-licious ideas).
Never thought of this before, but crumble with pears sounds pretty good to me. I was watching The Delicious Miss Dahl’s ‘Nostalgia’ episode yesterday on iPlayer and wished my own fruit bowl was slightly more pearish and ever so slightly less hard-lemonish so that I could quickly knock together this dessert. For those of you who have a fully functioning kitchen and a well-stocked larder (unlike me who relies on Ocado for nappies and fish fingers), then click here for the recipe on the BBC’s website.
