Ripe pears (Bosc or Anjou), sliced into wedges)
Thin slices of prosciutto
Blue cheese, crumbled
Honey, for drizzling
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Fresh rosemary sprigs for garnish (optional)
Slice the ripe pears into wedges, removing the seeds and core.
Take a slice of prosciutto and wrap it around each pear wedge, ensuring it covers the pear completely.
Place the prosciutto-wrapped pears on a serving dish. Crumble blue cheese over the top of each prosciutto-wrapped pear.
Drizzle honey over the blue cheese and prosciutto-wrapped pears. The sweetness of the honey complements the saltiness of the prosciutto and the richness of the blue cheese.
Sprinkle freshly ground black pepper over the top for a hint of spice.
Garnish the platter with fresh rosemary sprigs for a fragrant touch.
