  • Parfait

    Beat the egg yolks, egg and sugar using the whisk on a hand mixer until the mixture becomes lighter in colour. Carefully fold the cinnamon, cocoa and whipped cream into the mixture. Beat the egg whites with the salt until stiff, add the sugar, continue beating until the egg whites turn glossy, carefully fold into the mixture using a rubber spatula. Transfer the mixture to the prepared tin, cover and freeze for approx. 4 hrs.
  • Poached pears in red wine

    Bring the wine to the boil along with all the other ingredients up to and including the thyme, then simmer for approx. 5 mins. Add the pears, bring to the boil. Leave the pears to cool in the red wine, serve with the parfait.
  • Tip:

    Prepare the pears a day in advance so that they are deep red by the time they are served.
