Let your Fall pears (Bosc) stand out further by poaching them in a vibrant hue of Merlot wine. These pears are excellent for poaching because they retain their shape beautifully. With a sprinkle of cinnamon spice and a touch of honey or any sweetener, you can transform them into a great snack or dessert.

Do allow your pears to slowly simmer on low heat and catch the flavors and the bright burgundy/red color for approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Make sure to turn on all sides for even absorption. Do keep an eagle’s eye out as your merlot  bath will simmer into a sweet reduction. This reduction is excellent for a beautiful drizzle over ice cream.

Cool and then chill your merlot  poached pears and serve with/without a scoop of vanilla or any other flavor ice cream of your preference. The bold yet sweet flavors will explode in your mouth and make you feel like you’re in the picturesque hills of Tuscany overlooking the bay; or, Napa Valley with a harvest moon.

Salud my Foodies!

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
