“We've had a version of ‘stewed fruit’ and Greek yogurt on the menu since we opened but we change the fruit seasonally. This fall we tweaked the recipe. Instead of cooking the fruit on the stovetop, we roast it with olive oil and rosemary for a richer more flavorful dish,“ says Melia Marden, executive chef at The Smile.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

Roasted Pears:
2 sliced pears
The leaves of 1 rosemary sprig
1 1/2 tsp honey
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt to taste

Directions: Heat oven to 325°F. In a small bowl, toss sliced pears with honey, olive oil, cinnamon, and salt. On a large, lined baking sheet, spread rosemary and then pears in a single layer and bake until the edges have browned, but pears are still firm and intact, 25 minutes; let cool and discard rosemary leaves.

Ingredients:

Rosemary Honey:
2 rosemary springs
1/2 cup honey
1/2 tbsp lemon juice

Directions: In a small metal bowl, place all ingredients together and mix. Fill a medium sauce pan halfway with water and place over medium-high heat. Place the bowl over the saucepan until water comes to a boil; 15 minutes. Remove the bowl from heat and let cool completely.

Ingredients:

Parfait:
6 slices of pear
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
2 tsp rosemary honey
2 tsp sliced natural almonds

Directions: In a large bowl, scoop 1/4 cup yogurt and arrange sliced pears on top. Drizzle over half rosemary honey and sprinkle with half of the almonds. Spoon the remaining yogurt on top and repeat with remaining pears, yogurt, and almonds.
