Poires Helene is a classic French dessert made with poached pears, vanilla ice cream and a chocolate sauce.

The dish is said to have been created by Auguste Escoffier in the 19th century in honor of the operetta "Helene" by Jacques Offenbach.

The pears are usually poached in a syrup made with sugar, water, and vanilla, and served chilled, topped with vanilla ice cream and a chocolate sauce made with chocolate and cream. Some variations may include the addition of liqueur such as Grand Marnier or Cognac.

This dessert is well-known for its simplicity and elegance, the combination of the warm poached pear and the cold vanilla ice cream is a classic example of French culinary art.
