For the cherry tomato jam

  • 6 cherry tomatoes cut in quarters
  • 60 g granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 lime juice only

For the cheese

  • 1 round Brie cheese of 125g


For the cherry tomato jam

  • Place all the ingredients on a pan over medium heat and cook them until the tomatoes look shiny and cristal-y in appearance and the sugar thickens to resemble warm honey.
  • Remove the jam from the pan and let it cool down completely or until slightly warm.

For the Brie cheese

  • Draw a circle on thee top rind of the cheese, leaving about 3mm of edge.
  • With the same knife, remove the rind within that circle to expose the soft cheese below. Do it carefully so that you only remove rind.
  • Bake the cheese in a preheated oven at 180°C/350°F for 20-25 minutes or until the centre is liquid (you can check with a knife).
  • Serve immediately with the jam on top. Do it quickly since the Brie solidifies back pretty quickly.
