I adore this recipe because you can make it a couple of days in advance, and it is visually gorgeous. The pale yogurt against the deep maroon of the compote is nothing short of enticing, and no element is overly sweet. Of all the recipes I discovered while in France, this was the one that captured my heart.



  • 2 pounds fresh Bing cherries, pitted
  • 3 pears, such as Comice
  • 2 <


For the compote: In a large, heavy nonreactive saucepan, combine the cherries, pears, apples, sugar, and lemon zest. Gently toss to evenly coat the fruit with the sugar. Cook over low heat for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. The fruit should cook down to one-third or one-fourth of its original volume and the juices will be thickened. Remove from the heat and let cool completely in the pan. Cove
