Some time ago I’ve been traveling around South America. I did it on a low budget, so I had a chance to explore a local meals on markets. It was cheap and delicious. But one day it was my birthday and I’ve decided to get wild. I went to a restaurant in Sucre, Bolivia and ordered a special treat - brie in pannier with a honey souse. It was so good, that I ate it a couple more times.
During the weekend I’ve been going through some old pictures and I found one from the restaurant. It took me a while to find a proper recipe. But I did it. Maybe the brie is not in the pannier, but the honey souse makes it taste like heaven.
You will need:
- 1/4 cup honey
- 4 tsp water
- 1 sprig of rosemary
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
- 1 brie round
- baguette to serve
Preheat an oven to 175°C
In a small pot, over a low heat combine the honey, rosmary and water. Cook for about 15 minutes, occasionally stiring.
In the brie cut out the top skin, leaving around 1,5 cm border. Place the brie on a baking paper, pour the honey mixture over the top (without the rosemary) and bake for around 8 minutes.
Serve when still hot with a fresh baguette.
