Poaching Bartlett Pears Instead of Bosc

souschef | Aug 10, 2006 03:38 PM

I have a great recipe for Bosc pears poached in white wine, then served with mascapone, chocolate sauce, and caramel sauce (it's from Chocolatier magazine). Problem is that I just found out that Bosc pears are not in season, so I bought Bartlett. Will it work ? Anything to watch out for ? I'm having company for dinner this evening, so a quick response would be great.
