The Perfect Pairing

This is a great afternoon snack, appetizer or even dessert: Sweet, ripe pears that have a bit of firmness still, sliced fairly thin and placed all over a plate.  On top, ample slices of Robusto cheese.  Buy the cheese in small $5 blocks at your local Whole Foods, and enjoy.  Another cheese that's perfect with pears is Cabot Clothbound Cheddar, which tastes a bit like butterscotch.  It's very delicious, but perhaps not one you'd desire to eat over and over.  Robusto, on the other hand, scores high every time.  Whenever I serve up this treat, it's always on my mother-in-law's Blue Ridge China.
