Two Days of Noël : Good Cheer


Paul Lowe of the wonderful Sweet Paul blog has been posting lots of great food and craft holiday suggestions for the last little while, and I really loved his idea for a very simple dessert. Paul first buys a ripe, soft whole brie or camembert cheese. He leaves it out for at least 4 hours before serving, to soften it and allow the flavour to ripen. Once it's ready, he puts it on a large platter, drizzles good quality honey on it (Paul suggests lavender honey — mmm) and then adds sage leaves and a few fresh figs (or dried figs if preferred) and serves it with crackers, bruschetta and red wine. Easy and sophisticated. More wonderful ideas on Paul's blog here. (Photograph by Colin Cooke)
