Serve up this stilton, port and walnut pâté at your next dinner party for a sharing starter worth every bite. The marriage of sweet fruit and savoury stilton is an easy winner. First, toast the walnuts in a large, dry frying pan over medium-high heat for around 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned. Set aside. Heat a small frying pan over medium-high heat then add the pear, port, water and sugar.
