- Heat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the bread slices on a large baking tray and drizzle with the oil. Add the walnuts to a baking tray. Place everything in the oven for 8 minutes, turn the bread halfway through and give the walnuts a shake. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
- Spread each slice of baked bread with a little Roquefort and two slices of pear. Roughly chop the walnuts, then scatter over the crostini and drizzle with honey to serve.
Get ahead: Cook the bread and walnuts in advance, assemble and keep in the fridge an hour before serving.
Pairing suggestion: Enjoy with a Smoky Ginger cocktail (makes 1). Fill a highball glass with ice, add 25ml Laphroaig 10 Year Old Single Malt and 200ml chilled ginger ale and garnish with a lemon wedge.
