Peras al vino are a classic Spanish dessert from La Rioja. The pears are slowly poached in red wine, sugar and spices until tender and served cold with a drizzle of the cooking liquid and some whipped cream or ice cream on the side. This recipe serves the delicious poached and spiced pears with lemon curd ice cream - a flavour that doesn't get the attention it deserves! While poached pears are quite popular, this specific dessert idea is OLD SCHOOL, often seen in 1980s restaurant menus but nowadays long lost. The secret is to make a good cooking liquor that penetrates and flavours the pears well.
