Pears in wine

If you could choose:

Would you choose (unpeeled) pears roasted in red wine, served in a reduced glaze of red wine, black peppercorn and bayleaf poaching syrup, above? With the optional addition of marscarpone cream in the hollows, with crumbled Amaretti biscuits sprinkled over the top?

Or:

Would you choose pears poached in white wine, served cold with warm chocolate sauce, with reduced glaze of sauvignon blanc and lemon peel served in addition, on the side? Forgive blurry picture, below.

I need to know.

  8. Mmmm, both look really good but I'd go for the pears in red wine with mascarpone and ammaretto - makes me wish I had pears and red wine in the house!

  12. If we choose will you post the recipes? Have to go with #2 because of the chocolate, but one wow, they both sound wonderful!

  13. Final decision, it's been so hard, pears with chocolate. In depth of winter I'd go with the red wine one, not sure why. All delish and distracting!

  14. Ha. It's hard, isn't it!

    Thank you all very much for playing. I will be less cryptic about something I am working on as time goes by, but for now you have been very helpful. Belinda, your comment about dead of winter and red wine pears was very helpful, too.
