Poached pears is a simple and elegant dessert that will impress anyone who eats it. Peeled pears (stem intact) are poached in a flavorful liquid made from champagne, sugar, spices, and lemon zest. I love to serve the pears sliced lengthwise with mascarpone cheese in the middle with a drizzle of reserved syrup. If you have any leftover, store the pears whole in the poaching liquid.
