Castello Brie with French toast and apple compote

Preparation

Remove the Cheese from the fridge, ideally one hour before serving. Mix the apples with the cane sugar in a saucepan, and heat while stirring over a medium heat.  Cook the apples for approx. 15 minutes, or until they are just stewed. Stir the grated ginger into the hot compote and leave to cool.

Fry the sliced bread in butter and place to one side. Melt the sugar in the same frying pan and cook until it caramelizes, then turn the fried bread in the caramel and allow to cool. Slice the Cheese, and arrange the French toast with the apple compote, thyme and Castello® Brie.

Serve with a chilled Champagne.
