      I love rarebit but not many people I know know much about it. This was an unusual combination of flavors and I made it because it used up some stuff I had (leeks, pears) that were on their last legs. My DH said he could do without the sage, but I liked it. I cut back on the cheese and used a tablespoon of stone ground mustard instead of powder - but the sauce was great. Thanks for a great recipe - I'll make it again - would be a fun first course for a traditional English meal (like Beef Wellington or some such).
