There’s no getting around it. The holiday season – and the guests that come along with it – is fast approaching. But fear not. This spiced baked brie recipe from Le Creuset is all you need to kick your appetizer game up a notch.

Le Creuset Spiced Baked Brie

  • 1 round Brie (8.8 ounces)
  • 8 ounces fresh or frozen cranberries
  • Juice from 1 orange
  • ¼ cup candied ginger
  • ¼ cup walnuts, toasted


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F (232°C). Unwrap cheese and place it in the Le Creuset Camembert Baker.
  2. When oven is ready, stick baker in until the top of cheese slightly browns and rind begins to break open (approximately 12 – 15 minutes).
  3. Bring a pot of water to a boil, then add cranberries. While cranberries cook, heat skillet over medium heat.
  4. Once cranberries crack, strain and add them to warm skillet.
  5. Add orange juice and ginger into skillet. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, allowing  flavors to melt together and any extra moisture to evaporate.
  6. Cool the cranberry mixture, then toss with toasted walnuts.
  7. Serve cranberry mixture on top of warm cheese.

Pick up the fixings and a Camembert Baker, then get to hosting. Our Le Creuset Boutique opens Monday, November 9, at 3PM ET.

To celebrate what would have been a certain beloved chef’s 101st birthday this year, we scoured the pages of Mastering the Art of French Cooking for some can’t-miss tips. Here’s what we stirred up.

Make the Cut: A cook’s knives should be as sharp as razors. (You don’t want to bruise the food.) If the weight of a blade can slit a tomato’s skin, it’s ready to use.

Wine 101: Cooking with wine? Whites should be strong and dry, never sour or fruity. As for reds? Go for young and full-bodied. Remember, it’s the flavor that comes through, not the alcohol.

Fuel Up: Unless you have restaurant-quality gas pressure, a modern electric cooktop – which allows for a vast high-to-low heat range – is preferable to weaker domestic gas burners.

Our French Cookware, S’il Vous Plaît: Mauviel & More Boutique opens Friday, September 20, at 3PM ET.
