Roasted Pears with Spices and Saint Géric Recipe

Saint Géric

Those look amazing, don’t they? They are dinner rolls with a slather of  Blue Cheese Gougères, but have no fear you can use Fromager d’Affinois Blue or Saint Géric in this dish as well. Earlier this year when my husband was in the hospital the Fromager d’Affinois  company sent us couple cheeses to sample (Saint Géric and Saint Angel) and since we were going through a stressful time I never had time to share them with you. When I got these recipes from them last week I knew I had to tell you about them because, quite honestly, those were two of the best cheeses I have ever had in my life. They were simply amazing!

If you want to WOW! your guests this year at Thanksgiving you have to serve Roasted Pears with Spices and Saint Géric alongside a bottle of Viogner or Grenache. However, any way you share the Fromager d’Affinois cheeses can’t be wrong. Enjoy!

Roasted Pears with Spices and Saint Géric Recipe


  • 3 oz. Saint Géric (can substitute Fromager d’Affinois Blue if Saint Geric is not available)
  • 4 ripe pears
  • 1 tbs. curry seasoning
  • 4 tbs. butter
  • 1 tbs. honey
  • 1 tbs. flour


  1. Peel pears, cut in half, and remove center. Melt 1 oz. butter in a frying pan, add pears face down and brown. Once browned, add honey and curry seasoning, and continue to cook until caramelized, approx. 2 min.
  2. Place the pears into gratin dish with the caramel. Mix the rest of the butter with the flour in a bowl to obtain a slightly crumbly paste and spread over the pears. Bake the pears in a preheated oven at 350°F for 10 minutes. Remove the pears from the oven and top with finely sliced Saint Géric. Place back in the oven and cook until cheese melts, approx 4 to 5 minutes. Serve hot.

  1. This looks SO good!!

  2. So fancy, yet seems really easy if I can find that cheese. We have a Harry & David outlet right up the road and I had their pears for the first time a few holidays ago (had to write about them on my blog, they were life-changing). Anywho, I have wanted to do something else with them rather than eat the whole box raw so I thank you for this yummy idea. Would you say this is an appetizer or a side dish?

  3. Oh my word I need this. This is exactly the kind of treats I enjoy!
