I digress a little here, but upon looking at the cover of that book, I see it features Pears.
For a time my daughter & I noticed almost ever cooking tome we encountered featured pears, very prominently. As a fresh fruit, we love them. As a cooked item, not so keen.
Are we missing something??

Depends on the pear, is my thinking.
Comice pears, IMCO, are ideally poached and Bosc pears, can be both eaten out of hand or go in a tart.

I have it (yes, bargain table!) and while I haven't made anything out of it yet, it makes for great bedtime reading.

Give it a try! Especially if you go with the "plating" suggestions, you will be utterly heroic to your guests.
