La Poire Belle-Hélène recipe © French Cooking

La Poire Belle-Hélène is a delicious dessert made of pears poached in syrup and covered in liquid chocolate. Sounds tempting? It is a lovely way to end a meal as it is lighter than a pastry dessert, yet full of flavours. It was invented around 1864 by renowned French Chef Auguste Escoffier, and named in reference to an operetta composed at the time by Jacques Offenbach and named La Belle Hélène.


Preparation: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10-15 minutes

Ingredients (for 2 people):

- 2 pears

- 50cl water

- half a lemon

- 80g chocolate

- 70g caster sugar

- 15cl whole milk


The recipe:

- Peel two pears

- Squeeze half a lemon and pour 50cl of water in a pan.

- Add the sugar

- When the mixture is boiling, add the pears and leave them there for 10 minutes - 15 minutes for bigger pears. During this time the pears will absorb the syrup, which will give them lots of flavour.

- In the meantime, melt the chocolate in a bain-marie and add the milk. To do the bain-marie: put the chocolate and the milk in a bowl, which you place over a pan containing boiling water. Make sure that no water gets in contact with the chocolate and milk mixture.

- Once fully melted, place the liquid chocolate preparation in a small pot

- Pour the chocolate on the pears in front of your guests.

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog
    and was curious what all is required to get set up?

    I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost
    a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100%
    sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
