Being a Dutch girl in Paris I sometimes (well, most of the time) feel like an alien. When I walk down my street or go to le supermarché, I can’t help but wonder if they can see I’m not one of ‘theirs’. Which is a bit silly when you consider the percentage of foreigners living here. Plus the fact that no one really cares where I’m from, as long as I don’t get in their way! Because for a to me yet unknown reason, people in Paris seem to be way more time pressed than in the rest of France or the Netherlands.

Ingredients

  • 4 cooking pears
  • 250 ml red port
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp gingerpowder
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 4 cardamom cloves
