Your Choice


- Pears (1/2 a pear per person) - almost any variety will do. Selecting the correct "ripeness" is key. Firm and just barely ripe is perfect. Overripe pears will not hold up over the heat.

- Good Vanilla Ice Cream

- Cinnamon

- Olive, Canola, Grapeseed Oil or clarified butter



1. Pre-heat grill to medium high heat

2. Cut pears in half and remove stem as well as seeds with a melon baller. The hollow will be perfect for your ice-cream filling

3. Oil pears very well to prevent sticking

4. Place pears cut side down on the hot grill for 4-5 minutes - the idea is to sear quickly and cook throughout as quickly as possible

5. Use a spatula to remove the pears

6. Fill each pear with a scoop of ice cream

7. Dust with cinnamon and serve immediately
