Flourless Chocolate Cake with Spiced Pears

The recipe is dense with vibrant egg yolks, lightened with meringue, and saturated with bittersweet chocolate. The ginger-and-pepper spiced wine-poached pears that top this cake are fiery orange, tinted with beet, as an ode to the opening night regalia of the turning foliage.

Notes:
In Step 3, use the largest mixing bowl you have since later on in the recipe you will be folding in a large amount of meringue.
A beet will add fiery color to the pears.
Pears may be prepared up to 3 days in advance and stored in an airtight container, refrigerated.
