20 pear chips, 6 servings



A few hours before you serve the dish, make the pear chip garnitures. In a small saucepan, over medium heat, stirring together water and 1/2 cup sugar until sugar is completely dissolved. Slice the pear very thinly with a mandolin or a knife and dip in simple syrup. Lay on a silpat and bake in a convection oven on low, 225 degrees F, until dry and crisp about 60 minutes. Keep in an airtight container.

Place the passion fruit juice, orange juice, and sugar in a saucepan and simmer it to reduce by 1/2. Remove it from the heat and mount (whisk in) the cut up the cold butter a few pieces at a time. Keep warm while preparing the fruit but not too hot or the sauce will break and the butter come out of suspension.

In red wine glasses or other large stemmed glasses, divide up the blueberries, kiwis, strawberries, and pears evenly amongst 6 glasses. To serve drizzle them with the warm passion fruit butter sauce and place a pear chip in the center.
