Furneaux Torte with Cabernet Cranberries and Pistachios
This is how to please a crowd, a lovely big wheel of soft white cheese but down size if you have a smaller party!
|Preparation Time:||15 minutes|
|Cooking time:||10 minutes|
- 1.2 kg wheel brie
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup cabernet sauvignon
- 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons chopped pistachio nuts
- crusty baguette, for serving
Remove brie from refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature one hour before serving. Meanwhile, combine cranberries, cabernet and brown sugar together in a saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring until sugar has dissolved, then simmer for 5 minutes until cranberries are plump and syrupy. Allow to cool. Just before serving, place cheese onto a serving plate or cake stand, top with Cabernet Cranberries and pistachios. Serve in the centre of the table accompanied by crusty bread.
