This recipe was created to go with Seifried's Sweet Agnes Riesling Dessert wine, I buy it from the cellar door near Seifried's Rabbit Island Vineyard. If you can still get hold of the 2011 vintage it's slightly sweeter.
Caramelized Pear and Blue Cheese Parfaits
Serves 2 Greedy Girls
2 Beurre Bosc Pears
25g (1 stick) butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Pinch salt (if using unsalted butter)
1 tablespoon of cream
Wedge of double cream blue cheese
1 tsp grated nutmeg
Peel and slice the pears into thin pieces, removing the core
Heat the butter in a frying pan on a low heat and add the pear slices and sugar
Cook until the the pears are light brown and soft and the butter has caramelized into a sauce
Remove from the heat and stir in the cream and salt to taste.
Crumble the blue cheese into bite-sized pieces and stir through the warm pears
Spoon into parfait glasses and sprinkle over nutmeg
Serve with a dessert wine like Seifried's Sweet Agnes Reisling

Here's a more challenging Valentines dinner than my Retro Valentines Dinner Menu for the more experienced cook who wants to fully impress his or her other half with incredible culinary skills and genius - and have another excuse to gorge on super yumminess.
I'd start the meal with something simple like a fresh loaf of bread with assorted spready things (hummus, pesto, tapenade, cream cheese and chili sauce etc) followed by a steak and a great salad - blue cheese and pineapple go great with steak so throw them into the salad and finish up with a dessert that would even impress Adriano Zumbo!
