Next, you must prepare the filling, where the unique flavours combine. Thinly sliced pears are layered onto the crust, and a mixture of blue cheese, crème fraiche, and eggs are poured over the top. This filling gives the tart its distinct sweet and savoury flavour combination.

Once the tart is assembled, it is baked in the oven until the crust is golden brown and the filling is set. It is then served warm, either on its own or with a dollop of whipped cream or a drizzle of honey.
