The Pear is sublime. An all-time leader, Pear Soda inspires devotion and poetic proclamations from its many fans. Pear has a delicate, floral, extremely nuanced flavor with profound aroma and a light honey color. The cane sugar for this soda is infused for months with high-quality vanilla bean, enhancing the buttery flavor of the Comice Pear.
These pears are grown in Southwest Oregon, around the Rogue and Umpqua Valleys. They are very serious about pears in that part of Oregon, and grow some of the finest in the world.
Pear Soda is exotic and wonderful over pistachio ice cream. Our chef recommends serving the Pear with hazelnuts, either spiced or toasted but especially candied. Goat cheese is a natural complement. Superlative when mixed with vodka (though Dave votes for using Canadian Whisky).
