Cut the bread into rounds the same width as the cheese and toast until golden. Top with the cheese and place on a baking sheet along with the pears drizzled with a little honey and grill until the cheese is soft and the pears are heated through. Whisk together the lemon juice, honey, olive oil and season well. Arrange the chicory and watercress on the plates and drizzle with the dressing. Place a goat’s cheese toast and a pear on each place and serve.
