Vanilla Poached Pears with Chocolate Sauce - Tesco Real Food Challenge

Just in case you haven't heard - Tesco are running a competition to find the best Real Food Cook out there in a competition called the Tesco Real Food Challenge.

There are eight mood categories in the competition, each of which is backed by a Celebrity and a Food Blogger.

Do you have a recipe that could be a winner?

If you do, then pop over to Tesco Real Food and enter it now. There are some fantastic prizes to be won and you could even appear on TV in a show if your recipe gets through.

I'm teamed up with TV celebrity Tim Lovejoy in the category 'Date Night Dinners' and Tim's recipe for a date night dinner is Vanilla Poached Pears with Chocolate Sauce - and so of course, I had to make it myself; just to make sure it tasted good!

Tim's recipe can be found over at the Tesco Real Food Challenge website or I have a a very similar one here.

As they say you've got to be in it to win it, so, what food best matches your mood?

My 'Date Night Dinner' recipe for Prawn and Chorizo with Linguine and Chilli can also be found there, although of course, I'm not entered into the competition, it's just my suggestion for a Date Night Dinner.


  1. That looks very luxurious Jan! Nom, nom!

  3. That looks lovely Jan! :)

  4. Such fun! I vote for you and that pear!!!

  5. I can see I'm going to have to poach some pears. It's no good. I've always thought that poached pears is a bit of a "nothing" kind of dessert, however, so many people can't be wrong. Oh, and with that gorgeous chocolate sauce, well it's even convinced me. :)
