I like brie that is packed in wooden containers. That way I can use those containers when I bake the cheese. The wood might catch fire, but don’t worry — that will give the cheese a nice smoky aroma.
Don’t worry if you don’t have an open fire over which to cook this. You can stick it in an oven and then cut into it once it becomes warm and melted.
Enjoy with some crusty bread or crackers.
- dried cherries
- pine nuts
- salt and pepper
- Cut brie in half to expose the creamy interior. Place back in the wooden box.
- Salt and pepper cheese.
- Place dried cherries in the middle. Push hazelnuts down into cheese and arrange walnuts and pine nuts around the outside.
- Finish by glazing the cheese, fruit and nuts with a drizzle of honey.
- Position it over an open fire. Eat the cheese once it starts to warm and melt.
