  • 1 to 2 pears cut in 2
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • meringue
  • juice of 2 bergamot lemons
  • the zests
  • 4gr agar agar
  • 30cl of water
  • 60gr brown sugar


1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.⁣.

2. Cut the pear in half, rub it with half a bergamot lemon, then place in a baking dish. Spread the honey on the pears and bake for about 20 minutes. The pears should become slightly brown and meltingly soft.⁣

3. Meanwhile, prepare the jelly: mix the juice of the two bergamot lemons, add the zests, the brown sugar, the agar agar and 30cl of water. Boil the mixture and serve immediately in a bowl. As it cools, the agar agar will set the mixture.⁣

4. Add the roasted pears and some sprinkles of meringue.
