Asian Pears with
Ginger-Infused Miso Sauce
Western cuisines often pair cheese with fruit. In the Japanese kitchen a similar flavor profile – mellow-sweet tones enhanced by salty ones – can be achieved by napping fruit with flavored miso sauces. Fall fruits make an especially good match with miso. I like to pair a ginger-infused, pungent red miso sauce with crisp, juicy Asian pears.
