Some blokes have ‘lucky underpants’, I have ‘lucky dishes’. French uber-chef, Paul Bocuse’s red wine poached pears used to be one of mine. Then, staying in a mate’s cowshed in Switzerland I gave the recipe a spin using mulled wine. Perfect - especially when you add melty super-ripe Brie. It’s like a dessert and cheese course all in one! http://www.bestofcook.com/2014/06/how-to-cook-mulled-wine-pears.html
Delicious Mulled Wine Recipe--with spices and fragrant with winter fruits. Bartenders are ladling out mulled wine, Austrian and German gluhwein, Nordic glogg, and its contemporary equivalent, hot cider.
