I love buying pears when they're in season but can never think of anything to do with them, other than to eat them as they are. This recipe sounds delicious but do you think if I were to grill the pear slices it might give it a little extra depth in flavor, or would that ruin the texture?

Brie and pear is such a great combo. I personally would use a little bit less dijon, though.
