Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For Port wine reduction: Combine the port with the mirepoix and reduce by ⅔ to a syrup consistency, about 6 to 8 minutes. For stuffed pears: Combine the blue cheese and walnuts together. Stuff each pear with ¼ of the mixture. Place a pear in the center of the halved puff pastry sheet and wrap like a bundle, trimming any excess, thus leaving the shape of the pear evident. Brush each pear with the egg wash and bake until golden, about 8 to 10 minutes. To assemble, place the pear in the center of the plate, drizzle with the Port Wine Reduction, sprinkle with the walnuts and chives. This recipe yields 4 servings.
