Brie, Pear and Apricot Sammie with Sweet Thai Dipping Sauce

Jane Whittaker


This is a nice combo. Pears and Brie have been paired up for a long time.
If you decide to make this, be sure to include the dipping sauce, it really makes this sing.
Footnote on this is that this is the dish that sent me to Vegas in 2012 to the World Food Competition.
