French Butter Pears

We are so lucky to be using French Butter Pears from Nancy at Middleton Farms in Healdsburg, California. They are crisp and juicy when eaten raw and have a sweet creaminess after we poach them in bergamot and vanilla syrup.

We serve our French Butter Pears in the classic style of Belle Hélène – accompanied by the richest Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream, Valrhona Araguani chocolate and fragrant violet croquante.
