This brie en croûte with caramelized pears and beer really is out of this world and decadent. The sweet and salty mix is SO perfect in the mouth! For internal use only.


  • 1 round puff pastry of 250g, thawed
  • 1 brie double cream cheese, 450g
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 ripe Bartlett pear, cut in half lengthwise and in 3-4 mm slices
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons Éphémère Pear from Unibroue (or other slighty fruity white beer)
  • 1/4 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries


  • Preheat oven at 410°F.
  • Spread puff pastry and place brie cheese in the middle. Fold pastry over. Don’t worry if it is not covering it all on top!
  • Brush pastry sides and top with egg white and place on a cooking tray covered with parchment paper. Cook for 30-35 minutes, until crust is golden. Take out of the oven and let cool down for 5 minutes.
  • When 10 minutes remains for the baking of the cheese, start preparing the pears. Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the pears, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and 2 tablespoons of beer then stir. Cook for 8 minutes while stirring gently.
  • Add the pecans, cranberries, the rest of the syrup and the beer then stir gently. Cook for 2 minutes and remove from heat.
  • Place the cheese on a plate and pour the mix over the top. Serve immediately and careful not to get burned!!!!

Our wine stewards suggest

+- 15$ Concha y Toro Vendanges Tardives Sauvignon Blanc 2013

A late grape harvest from Chili at such a good price that you'll become addicted to it!

+- 30$ Maculan Torcolato 2010

30$ for half a bottle? Expensive... But for one of the best desert wine from Italy? I say it's a bargain...

British, À la Fût

This English-inspired nut brown ale has an intense flavour of nuts. It will emphasize the aromas of nuts and maple of this dish. Since it’s low in alcohol and quite dry, this beer will be perfect with this meal.
