Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Dip cheese in flour, then in eggs, then in pecans. Heat butter in ovenproof skillet and brown cheese on both sides.

Place skillet in oven until cheese turns soft, about 5 minutes. Remove cheese from skillet and serve with Pear Confit, salad and very lightly grilled bread.

Dress greens with a balsamic vinaigrette (1 part balsamic, 2 parts pure olive oil, 1 chopped shallot & 1 tsp brown mustard whisked together). Makes Pear Confit: Heat butter in skillet until foamy; add pears & cook until brown. Add sugar & let caramelize 1 minute. Add cumin, cloves and cranberries. Add vinegar. Deglaze pan by stirring up browned bits from the bottom. Remove from heat. Serve with Camembert Crisp.
