Cut your French loaf into slices. Peel for your pear into thin slices. Toast your bread and arrange a slice of pear over it. Add a cube of gorgonzola cheese: a small cube is enough, consider that it will melt quickly! Grind a handful for walnut kernels, then sprinkle them over the bruschetta. Bake for 10 minutes at 180°C.

In order to enjoy this starter at its best, we suggest to uncork a bottle of sparkling Pinot Rosa, a nice wine from Italy.
Even if according to the tradition the Gorgonzola cheese comes from the homonymous  town nearby Milano, it seems that its rooted in Pastura di Valassina, another Italian town where, due to the presence of some natural caves, this cheese can mature throughout the whole year.
