Key Highlights

  1. Pears are unique because they bring a subtle sweetness and juiciness to sweet dishes
  2. The slightly firm texture of pears hold up well in savoury dishes; adds a refreshing touch
  3. Pears can bring unique flavours and textures to a variety of dishes beyond being eaten raw

It’s that time of the year when the festive spirit gets people into a different kind of mood as they start planning for Christmas and New Year. The winter doesn’t let you forget about it either. Interestingly, the season also brings with it many different kinds of fruits and vegetables, and while apples and strawberries are popular, pears are also easily available. Even though pears often stand out because of their vibrant green colour amid other fruits, city chef Mozanne Karbhari believes it doesn’t get the attention it deserves compared to other fruits. “Pears are unique because they bring a subtle sweetness and juiciness to sweet dishes, while their slightly firm texture holds up well in savoury preparations, adding a refreshing element,” Karbhari explains.
