Labna is a sharp-tasting yogurt cheese that balances with the sweetness of honey syrup and the mellowness of saffron pears. This is a deceptively simple dish, but does need some time to be left to its own devices (think two days ahead of when you want it). If you want to serve the pears tonight, though, you can use Waitrose Soft Cheese beaten with a little salt and lemon juice, instead of the Labna. To ensure your pears look completely smooth after peeling, rub them all over with a clean tea towel.
