Triple Cream Brie with Figs, Raspberries and Pomegranate

This is a stunning way to serve a whole log or wheel of Brie for a special occasion.

Serves: 30
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup red wine, port or sweet vermouth
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 4 cloves
  • 1kg log ripe triple cream brie or 1 kg wheel brie or camembert, at room temperature
  • 6 fresh figs, quartered
  • 1 punnet raspberries
  • 1/4 cup fresh pomegranate arils (seeds)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pistachios
  • 2 pkts almond bread, for serving
Method

Combine wine, sugar and cloves in a saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring until dissolved. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes until syrupy and allow to cool. Remove cloves. To serve, place the brie on a platter and if using a log, cut a few starting slices. If using a wheel, leave whole. Decorate with figs and raspberries. Drizzle with syrup and sprinkle with pomegranate arils and pistachios. Serve with almond bread and remaining syrup on the side.

Tips

Note: Collect any pomegranate juice that is released as you are removing the seeds, and add to the syrup when simmering.
