Funky Pear Bites

I am very glad that we have more and more people joining our cooking sessions, introducting new culture. For a month now, my friend Mathieu has invited two of his friends (Carlos, a Brazilian and Loreleï, a French) since then, they started to come to our cooking sessions.

Since we were a lot that day, appetizers are a must to keep the guest entertain. I said to some of them to make a short-and-simple dish. So, Carlos chose to make funky pear bites (his choice of title, not mine). The joy of cooking in groups is to learn from others such as ingredients that you never thought that they can go together. This appetizer, I never thought that the pear/goat chesse can be paired to make a delicious appetizer.
