Ingredients
  1. Block of Fourme de Montbrison (about 10oz)
  2. 2 Seckel or Anjou Pears
  3. 1 loaf of multigrain bread
  4. 1/2 cup of sugar
Instructions
  1. Cut your block of cheese and your quinces into bite size cubes
  2. Slice and toast bread into thin slices
  3. For the syrup: Mix 1/2 cup of sugar with one cup of water
  4. Serve each ingredient separately, allowing guests to build sandwiches by placing the cheese and quince in between pieces of bread and dipping in the syrup
Notes
  1. A classic wine pairing for this popular dessert recipe is one of Bordeaux’ sweet wines from the Cadillac appellation. The sweetness of this wine would serve as a rich compliment to the bitterness of the blue cheese, and its aroma will be similar to that of the quinces.
  2. For a more adventurous pairing, try this dessert with a sweet Bordeaux from the Sainte-Croix-du-Mont appellation.
