“A man watches his pear tree day after day, impatient for the ripening of the fruit. Let him attempt to force the process, and he may spoil both fruit and tree. But let him patiently wait, and the ripe pear at length falls into his lap.” -Abraham Lincoln

Pear trees don’t usually come with a partridge, but perhaps during the holiday season. Pears became a popular holiday gift in the 1800s because of their ability to stay fresh for long periods of time, especially when the weather is cool. Today, they are still a popular gift bestowed upon loved ones during the holiday season, possibly because in Ancient China it was believed pears represented immortality and prosperity. Their refreshingly sweet taste and considerable health benefits make them the perfect choice to indulge in this season. We invite you to join us for a very special seasonal menu celebrating the pear with exciting, original flavors, textures and platings.
