Adie and Grant came along - fresh from haircutting services. Stew had corrective eye surgery that afternoon too so we were all pretty spruced up and ready to eat.
Homemade oat biscuits (super easy) with Miriam's Chicken Liver pate
Blue cheese, pear and honey parcels with that walnut bread, toasted this time.
Peel and slice enough pears to give half per person. Slice and fan the halves on squares of baking paper.
Crumble about 50gm good blue cheese over the top. Top with a tablespoon of honey and a good dollop of thickened cream or runny cream.
Staple them up into parcels that won't leak and bake 20 minutes. Let them rest for a while if you like. Cut them apart and present on platters - one for each guest.
We had a bottle of First Knight Ambrosia from the Food Show, made in Gisborne. It was utterly divine with the pears - as you can see from the amount left in the bottle.
