This Grilled Brie starter will soon become a staple at all your parties, and keep experimenting with the jams and fruits to keep it exciting all the time! 

This was the showstopper at a dinner date with 7 girlfriends and my sister! Nothing could be simpler to make and look so exotic that people actually start asking you for its recipe even before they have the first bite! At home, a Brie dish is always served as an appetiser, it’s a cheese that makes you look good. It’s exotic and it pairs beautifully with wine. This time however I took the brie a notch higher, yes that is possible, by pairing it with some glorious honey coated roasted figs. Honey and figs, a pair made in heaven!

And so the date was set, I had often made donuts the traditional way, but anything fried had been banned since my husband had decided to put his health before everything else…It did test my cooking knowledge, but it’s been a fun, learning process!
Most of the flours in the house have been replaced, Stevia, palm sugar and date syrup take up more space than any other sweeter, the deep-frying pan hasn’t seen the light of day for close to two years now! And most weekdays are all about grilled meats and veggies! And of course an array of fresh vegetables and fruit juices.
