  • 250g/8oz brie cheese
  • ½ clove garlic sliced
  • 1 tbsp whiskey or bourbon
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary fresh only
  • 50g/1/2 cup walnuts chopped
  • 1 tbsp pomegranate seeds optional


  • Preheat the oven to 450F/220C. Cut the rind off the top of a wheel of brie cheese. Cut slits into the cheese and insert garlic slices. Do not be tempted to put a whole clove in or it will overpower the cheese. Sprinkle with whisky all over.
  • Top with chopped rosemary and walnuts. Then drizzle with maple syrup or honey. Bake at 450F/220F for 15 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds before serving.


Feel free to substitute fresh rosemary with fresh thyme. However I would not recommend using dried herbs as their texture is too woodsy to compliment melted cheese.
