Gin & Tonic Poached Pears

The gin & tonic combination in these poached pears came about sort of by accident due to having no wine opener (or wine for that matter) in our new place to make my usual poaching recipe, but the G&T version turned out to be a real revelation – the gin gives a light bitterness that works beautifully as a counterpoint to the sweet fruitiness of the pear, and the various aromatics flavour the syrup beautifully.

Toasted Oat Ice Cream

Until I tried this ice cream, I never really realised how much I liked the flavour of oats, or even that I could recognize ‘oat’ as a distinctive taste. Oats have a lovely flavour though, with a full, rich, biscuity taste when toasted; creamy and calming when infused with the milk in this lovely ice cream.
