A recipe, this, from Nigella Express. When I was looking for it online, I came across some episodes from 'Nigella Bites' on Youtube, from about 10 years ago, and was struck at how much Nigella has changed. I don't mean physically - haven't we all become a little more, ahem, voluptuous, over the intervening years? Her personality was much less 'in your face' and not nearly as flirty as she is in her current incarnation. Anyhow, this is a delicious and dead simple recipe. Nigella uses tinned pears, but we had a surfeit of extremely ripe fresh pears that we peeled and halved. Yummy!
