Poached pears in Vermouth

The other day we went for lunch with work and in the menu that they prepared for us, there was 2 deserts to choose from: tiramisu and poached pears in wine. As I really don’t like tiramisu due to the coffee flavour, I thought i’d try the pears. And in fact I loved it, I didn’t have it for so long that I didn’t remember the taste.

So I thought I had to make my own and I tried with Vermuth instead of wine. Accompanied by a mascarpone cream was just perfect to balance the tastes.
