Buy the best freshest ricotta you can find. Easy to expand this recipe by buying a large round cake of ricotta to feed more people. Simply multiply other ingredients to suit the weight of the whole ricotta. It looks wonderful on a large round plate.


Step 1: Slice pears lengthways and remove cores and squeeze with lemon juice so that they don’t oxidise and place around the ricotta, then pour a full flavoured, rich honey over the top and serve.

Maggie's Tip: This requires a really great honey; think natural honey which is more savoury than sweet. Mallee or Heatherwood honey would be great!


  1. 2 tbspn lemon juice
  2. 180g ricotta
  3. 2 to 4 tbspn honey
