    Derf's Note:

    This is a really fun party dish, everybody wants into the act. You will have an audience, with a lot of kibitzing to flambe and the bonus is that it is a delicious impressive dish!! One of our favourite dinner parties. Serve with asparagus, and boiled/buttered/parselied baby potatoes.

      Was a Valentines Day dinner in this house, I used red pears. The flambe part was fun, my son left the area quickly, I think he thought I was about to burn the house down, he'd be great in an emergency!! The flavours in this dish are superb, thanks Dorothy. =)

      Ok, so I botched the flambe part but it was still delicious. Also threw half apples and half pears and it still worked!

      Wowwee! This was fun and no singed eye brows. I used Asian apple pears (there are a lot of locally grown ones around this year) and they were delicious. Thanks for another great recipe Dorothy. Cheers Bergy
