Servings 12


  • 3 fresh Asian pears
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 6 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 slices of prosciutto or Parma ham
  • 3/4 cup cranberry sauce
  • Crumbled goat cheese
  • Sprigs of thyme


  • On a cutting board, slice pears to make 4 rounds from each pear. Remove the core from each round using a melon baller or sharp spoon.
  • Dip pear slices into lemon juice diluted 1:10 with water to keep them from browning. Pat dry, place each round on a platter, and sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon of light brown sugar on top of each round. Using a culinary torch, brulée (brown) the sugar. Sprinkle a dash of pepper and top with a slice of prosciutto. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the cranberry sauce on top of each and sprinkle a little goat cheese on each piece. Garnish with a sprig of thyme. Serve immediately and enjoy!
