Baked Brie with thyme and grapes from Chef Lorena Garcia

Whenever you have friends and family over, there’s nothing better than greeting them with a yummy appetizer fresh from the oven, such as a baked Brie with grapes. It sounds fancy and complicated but I recently saw during a California Grapes event how easy it is. Chef Lorena García demonstrated how in just a few minutes you can prepare her delicious baked Brie “en croute” without having to go to culinary school. Her recipe incorporates grapes, something I would have never thought of. She said it’s more than okay to use puff pastry from the supermarket, which I intend to do.
