We asked one of our fantastic Curated Suppliers, Blue Strawberry, for a special pear recipe especially for Pearl & Pear and this is what they sent us.
Pear chutney, especially this smooth, is ideal for spooning on top of small bites and would be perfect on one of Blue Strawberry’s new canapés – ‘spicy smoked hake and blue cheese beignet, tarragon mayo and pear chutney’.
