The Time is Ripe for Pears!

A treat worth traveling 3,000 miles for: Pear and Pistachio Baklava by Hedy Goldsmith of Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink in Miami.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been crisscrossing the country on one of our most delicious projects yet, The Time is Ripe for Pears Tour. Together with longtime client USA Pears, our team is taking fresh pears on the road to eight top cities to spread the message about proper pear ripening. In each city, we’re hosting pear samplings for consumers, as well as special multi-course pear dinners with the city’s top food writers. We’re exactly mid-way through the Tour now, with Boston, New York, Atlanta and Miami in the rear view mirror, and Philadelphia, Chicago, Seattle and our own hometown of Portland on the horizon. It’s been a food-lover’s trip of a lifetime so far. If you’ve ever dreamt of a culinary escape to one of these amazing cities, enter The Time is Ripe for Pears Sweepstakes – you could follow in our footsteps and win a trip for two to the tour city of your choice!

We couldn’t resist snapping a photo with this giant pear at Edward Everett Square in Dorchester, Boston!
