Ever since I read Carole Walter's recipe for Brioche Buns with Dried Pears and Camembert I couldn't get the combination of creamy Camembert, toasted walnuts and candied pears infused with orange and cardamom out of my head.   I think about it everyday but I cannot make it - I haven't got dry pears! 

In our local supermarket there is abundance of dried mango, pineapple, banana, cranberries and once I even came across dried kiwi fruit but no dried pears!  I looked in all the local supermarkets but no avail.  I became obsessed with my search.  I went into depression.  My world stopped spinning. No, nothing else could substitute. Downright silly, I know. 

Then in July, my coworkers Soph and Venna headed to Sydney to meet some clients.  I begged them for a packet of dried pears.  Finally I can make Dried Pears and Camembert Loaves. 

I think I've done those dried pears justice.

It looks delicious and is making my mouth water!!!
So, tell me how it was and whether the taste turned out what you expected?

Hi Maki, I loved it but would add more Camembert next time!
