blue cheese ice cream and pear

Inspired by Gordon Ramsay and Chef Lippe at www.floridacheeseclub.com


4 egg yolks

½ cup sugar (caster if you can find it)

2 1/3 cups cream

¼ pound Gorgonzola Cheese



Heat cream until almost boiling in small saucepan

While cream is heating, whisk egg yolks and sugar until light and fluffy

Stir egg and sugar mixture into cream on low heat, stir until thick and coating the back of a spoon.

Crumble gorgonzola and stir to melt. Start with ½ of the cheese and taste it, add more until the taste hits you as “marvelous”

Freeze overnight.

Serve on warm oven roasted pears with some strong flavored honey.

3 ripe pears cut in half

2 tablespoons butter

½ cup honey

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons brown sugar


Cut pears in half and remove core (use a melon baller). In a cast iron skillet add butter, honey, vanilla, brown sugar and salt. Let it come to a gentle boil stirring continuously (about 2 minutes on med heat).  Add the pears cut side down.  Give them a shake and let them simmer on stove for about 2 minutes.  Turn the pears over and transfer to oven. Bake for 12 minutes at 450 until the pears are soft and the sauce has caramelized.

Remove from oven add a scoop of gorgonzola ice cream and enjoy!
