    You can make the pears 2 days in advance, once the pears are tender, turn off the heat then cool the liquid and the pears. Transfer the pears to a container and cover with the cooled poaching liquid. Reheat the pears in the liquid just before serving and make the whipped cream. If you do not have a vanilla bean, substitute 2 to 3 teaspoons of vanilla extract.
