Brie Con pera... Poached Pear on Brie...

Brie cheese is so decadent and incredibly delicious...  I love it soft and warm,  served with fruit and  Toasted Almonds,  or any nut for that matter.  This time ,  I topped it with a Pear,  which I poached in white wine.  When the pear was soft,  I removed it from the wine, then  added Balsamic Vinegar  and reduced it down until it was quite syrupy... then added some honey.  I drizzled this dark , slightly sweet  syrup over the Pear which I had placed upon a wedge of Brie that I had warmed  in the oven at 350 for a few minutes,  until it was soft.  I then sprinkled it with  a few Toasted Almonds...  Served with Bread and Wine (obviously ).... Spectacular!
