The first fruit hanging on our young Seckel pear tree. The smallest of all commercially grown pears and so sweet they are know as "sugar pears" Seckels are the perfect bite sized dessert pear and thought by some to be the only true American variety. No matter their provenance the sweet spicy flavor of Seckel pears is a delight fresh with mild cheese, roasted with meats or poached for dessert. I can hardly wait for harvest.
I'm just a self-taught home cook who likes to try new things. One day when things were a little slow and dinner looked better than usual I decided to post the results on Facebook. Then I did it again and again -- and well, here I am, another addition to the blogosphere.
James, aside from being the "luckiest man alive" ;-), is my very tolerant boyfriend of nearly 10 years. I hope you enjoy sharing his dinner.
