Deliciously sweet grilled pears filled with fresh cheese and meringue with Bambu®, this makes a wonderfully unique dessert which can be enjoyed warm or cold.
1. Bring the water, Bambu® powder and sugar to the boil. Peel the pears, halve and core. Cook in the Bambu stock until al dente. Take out 4 pear halves and put into a gratin dish. Cook the rest of the pears until quite soft.
2. For the filling, mix the cheese with Bambu® powder and cinnamon. Chop the ginger and add to mixture. Fill the al dente pear halves with the ginger mixture and pour over some of the Bambu stock. Preheat the oven to 175°C.
3. For the meringue, melt the butter, and leave to cool a little. Beat the egg white with the salt until halfway stiff. Add sugar and beat once more until the mixture is stiff. Add flour and stir in the yoke with the butter. Divide the meringue between the pear halves and bake in the centre of the oven for about 15 minutes until golden.
4. Meanwhile puree the rest of the pear halves with 100ml of Bambu® powder stock to make a sauce. Divide between 4 dessert plates and place the grilled pears on top.
5. Serve warm or cold.
