Should be good. Lots of fruit goes beautifully with gorgonzola.

Will try it the next time we have guests. I'm thinking of altering it by using a whole wheat baguette. Whole Foods generally has them. It would be healthier and I think tastier, as the more nutty taste of the whole grain bread should blend with the pears and gorgonzola.

Are you going to have to put bacon on top to get SR to eat it? :p
