You will find many good-quality commercial compotes or chutneys at the market today, especially those made with fruits such as mango or apple. Either would be a good substitution in this recipe. Other cheeses such as Jarlsberg, mild goat cheese or Manchego would make a nice addition to this arrangement.

To make the crostini, preheat an oven to 350°F. Arrange twenty-four 1/2-inch-thick baguette slices on a baking sheet and brush lightly with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until golden, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • 129


  • 2 pears such as Bartlett or Bosc, peeled, quartered, cored and coarsely chopped
  • 1 star anise or cinnamon stick
  • 2 1/2 Tbs. fruity white wine such as Riesling
  • 1 Tbs. sugar, or to taste
  • 4 oz. aged pecorino romano cheese
  • 4 oz. Maytag or other blue cheese
  • About 24 toasted crostini (see note above) or large crackers

Wine Pairing

This pairs well with soft, full-bodied white wines from our Wine Club.


Cook the pears
In a fry pan over medium-low heat, combine the pears, star anise, wine and sugar. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the pears are almost falling apart, about 12 minutes. Let cool to warm room temperature. (The compote may be refrigerated for up to 8 hours; bring it to room temperature before serving.)

Arrange the platter
Transfer the compote to a bowl and place on a large platter. Arrange the cheeses and crostini around the compote and serve. Alternatively, layer a slice of cheese and a dollop of compote on each crostini, arrange on a serving platter and serve. Makes about 24 pieces.
