For the poached spiced pear with blue cheese, peel the fruits with a peeler, cut in half and remove the core. Add the grape juice, white wine and spices to a saucepan and stir well. Bring the sauce to a boil and add the pear halves. Put the lid on, remove the pan from the heat and let it cool for about 20 minutes.
