Servings 6 serves


  • 400 g blocks of feta cheese 2 x 200g
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 large pear very thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup pecans chopped
  • 3/4 tablespoons honey


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Heat a large fry pan over medium-low heat and add butter. Stir in pear slices, salt, cinnamon and brown sugar, tossing well to coat.
  • Cook for 8-10 minutes until pears are super ‘caramely’ and soft.
  • In a separate small pan, add pecans and toast over low heat for about 5 minutes, just until fragrant. Set aside.
  • Cut both blocks of feta in half and place in a baking tray. Brush with olive oil. Bake for 10 minutes, then turn your oven to grill.
  • Place the pan the second highest oven rack and check after 1-2 minutes, and once the cheese is golden and bubbly on top, remove it.
  • Cover the feta with the pears (and any sauce/juice in the pan), the pecans and the honey. Serve immediately with lavish, crackers, fruit or vegetables.
