The pears: peel the cooking pears but don’t remove the stalks. Take a small high cooking pot and put the pears into it, accompanied by a quarter of a bottle of Poire Williams, sweet white wine, vanilla sugar, a few cloves and a cinnamon stick. Let this simmer covered for half an hour on low heat and check regularly with a skewer if the pears are ready cooked. For the chocolate sauce: melt dark chocolate in a bain-marie with a cup of strong coffee and a few spoonfuls of cream sauce to the desired thickness is reached. Put the almond flakes in a dry pan and roast them until they are lightly browned. Sprinkle the dinner plate sloppy with icing and sprinkle haphazardly toasted almond flakes over it. Dip the pear until halfway into the chocolate. Pour a nice round circle chocolate sauce in the middle of the dinner plate.
