    1. Preheat an oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    2. Press three cloves into each quince half. Place the fruit in a roasting tin cut-side down. Add the water, wine and cinnamon sticks to the tin; sprinkle the sugar over the quince.
    3. Bake the quince in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 35 to 40 minutes. Turn the quince right-side up and bake until tender, about 10 more minutes.
    4. Remove the tin from the oven and let the quince cool slightly. Transfer each quince half to a plate and drizzle with a tablespoon of juices from the roasting tin and a dollop of whipped cream.
