The Major’s Poached Pears
with Chocolate Sauce

 "Twill make Old Women Young and Fresh;
Create New Motions of the Flesh.
And cause them long for you know what,
If they but taste of Chocolate."
from "A History of the Nature and Quality of Chocolate",
James Wadworth (1768-1844)

 Note:  This is a do-ahead dish.

4 pears, peeled, halved and cored
4 cups white wine
(White Zinfandel works nicely,
could go to a Chablis)
3/4 cup white sugar
3 or 4 whole cloves
1 stick cinnamon

2 squares semi-sweet baking chocolate
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 1/4 cups confectioner's sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup strong brewed coffee

Poach pears in wine with sugar, cloves and cinnamon, simmering over
medium-low heat for 20-30 minutes, or until the pears are nicely tender.
Let cool in the wine, 2-3 hours (or overnight).
 Chop up the chocolate with a sharp knife. Mix remaining ingredients
in a double boiler (or reasonable facsimile of same) and simmer gently,
stirring  occasionally, for about 30 minutes.
 To serve, spoon a little of the sauce into a bowl, add a couple of pear
halves, and pour chocolate sauce over. You might want to be sure not
to stand between the food and your guests (particularly female ones).
