    It's not hard to remember the proportions of this recipe - the weight of flour, butter, sugar and eggs is the same. Then, you can add whatever you like - in this case, pears and chocolate.

    Chicken cooked in a tagine is always meltingly tender. Adding sweet, caramelised pears at the end makes this dish irresistible.

    This mincemeat is a bit unorthodox, using loads of pears. Try it during Christmastime, or can it for year-round use.

    This salad has the perfect combination of flavours and textures. It's fruity, sweet, tangy and crunchy. Lettuce is layered with pears, Roquefort, avocado and spring onions, drizzled with a mustard dressing and scattered with caramelised pecans. It's the perfect summer salad to be enjoyed anytime of the year. Serve as a side dish or starter.

    Invented this lovely pear and almond tart for a lunch when I had over-bought pears. You can get away with using firm pears for this because they soften up in cooking. Unlike some almond fillings, this is not too heavy or rich.
