Notes

  • Note 1 the garlic can be chunky, don't worry too much about perfect slices (never been my thing), it will soften a lot after being cooked so the harsh taste dissipates. 
  • Note 2 the scoring term refers to cutting but not all the way down. So score the cheese only on the top rind. It will be much easier for guests to dip their cracker and get to the delicious brie centre. 
  • Note 3 the only real way to tell if the brie is baked to the extent we are looking for is to push it with the tip of your finger. It should be soft and give a bit. It is still seems quite firm, bake for another 3 mins.  The rind helps keep its shape. The risk in over cooking it is that it will melted into a big pile of goo if you leave it in the oven too long.
