[editor: reader uses pear wine, consider including in headnote; pw] I developed this recipe while working at a local winery using their pear wine. It became an instant classic at my house and is so fast and easy to prepare. You can have a glass of the wine while waiting for the entree to cook! I do not suggest using a semi-sweet or sweet white wine for this recipe.

This recipe was a collaboration between my son and I. He wanted to enter a contest because he aspires to be a chef someday. Although they look fancy, they're easy to make.
