The pure nature of this Cap Classique calls for authentic food of the highest simplicity: pear poached in Kaaimansgat Blanc De Blancs with fresh bay leaf and star anise - enjoyed of course, with a glass of the Blanc de Blancs. This is happiness.
1. Peel the pears and keep in lemon water until needed.
2. Place the remaining ingredients in a large saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes to dissolve and infuse.
3. Add the pear and cook over very low heat with lid on for 10 minutes, leave to cool in the syrup.
