  1. 1 For the pear puree: bring the pear wedges, liquid and spices to the boil in a covered saucepan. Allow to draw and swell overnight and then chop up finely in the mixer.
  2. 2 Put the cheese slices on a plate. Using two spoons make little "ships" out of the pear puree and place on the cheese slices. Arrange the bread sticks in a decorative fashion and maybe garnish with pear wedges and orange sage.
