Finally, I got around to this and I am glad I did. Ile de France brie baked in puff pastry with a whiskey fig compote and fennel. These flavors are so grown up its scary.
I have been getting this magazine for years and my subscription recently ran out and I just now realized it. What have I been doing? Cooks Illustrated is a great source for all kinds of things you thought you knew but found out you didnt. The online version is good but its nice to hold it and fold the spine back, and dog ear pages, you know what I mean,
I wrapped up the brie in puff pastry and baked it until it was golden.
I simmered some figs in a little butter, whiskey and a touch of honey until it was as thick as grandmas accent and poured this all around the hot baked brie. I topped it off with some fennel fronds and dove in.
Since 'william' is such a big fan I thought I would give 'william' another look.
