National Pears Helene Day

March 15th is Pears Helene Day, a celebration dedicated to the delectable French dessert comprising warm poached pears, vanilla ice cream, and chocolate sauce. This dessert not only indulges the taste buds but also pays homage to French culture and history. National Pears Helene Day ensures that the tradition lives on. Interestingly, the original recipe's complexity led to the creation of simpler versions using canned pears, with sliced almonds replacing crystallized violets to cater to a broader audience.
