Poached Pears

Prepared by Cookhouse

What You Will Need:

  • 1 cup sugar

  • ½ cup white wine

  • ½ cup water

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 1 lemon

  • 2 Pears


1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar, water, wine, bay leaf, and lemon. Bring to a simmer.

2. While poaching liquid is heating, peel the pear with veggie peeler.

3. Cut in half lengthwise, remove seeds with a Teaspoon measure.

4. Place pear halves into poaching liquid, and cook at a low simmer for 4 minutes.

5. Remove from heat, and chill pear in the poaching liquid. Slice thin only when ready to use.

Shallot Vinaigrette

Prepared by Cookhouse

What You Will Need:

  • 1 shallot, minced

  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • 2 heaping teaspoons Creole mustard (Dijon)

  • ¼ teaspoon Kosher salt

  • ½ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil, more to taste


1. The easiest way to prepare this is to put everything in a blender and buzz it up for a few seconds.

2. If you want to skip the blender, simply put all ingredients except the oil, in a medium mixing bowl.

3. Whisk them together for 2 minutes, then slowly add the oil in a steady stream while whisking.

4. Adjust seasoning once finished, and know that this will taste better after an hour or so, once it’s had some time for the flavors to marry. Keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
