The classic French dessert Poire Belle-Hélène, named after the 1864 Offenbach operetta, makes a wonderful sweet treat for the family.
If time is short use canned pears and Waitrose Belgian Chocolate Sauce. Removing the cores when the pears are cooked is easier than with raw pears.
A delicious red dessert wine is excellent with dark chocolate.
