BEWITCHING BRIOCHE


Ever since I read Carole Walter's recipe for Brioche Buns with Dried Pears and Camembert I was decidedly bewitched.  I couldn't get the combination of creamy Camembert, toasted walnuts and candied pears infused with orange and cardamom out of my mind.   I think about making the brioche everyday but I cannot.  I haven't got dry pears! 


In our local supermarket there is abundance of dried mango, pineapple, banana, cranberries and once I even came across dried kiwi fruit but no dried pears!  I looked in all the local supermarkets but no avail.  I became obsessed with my search.  I went into depression.  My world stopped spinning. No, nothing else could substitute. Downright silly, I know. 

Then in July, my coworkers Soph and Venna headed off to Sydney to attend a client meeting and yes, they brought me back a small packet of dried pears!  Finally I can make Dried Pears and Camembert Loaves. 





I think I've done those dried pears justice.

Hi Maki, I loved it but would add more Camembert next time!
