Brie fondant aux pommes et sirop d'érable :)

See it large for better view :) Trust me!

 

I guess the English translation will be… Baked brie with apple and maple syrup.

 

Seriously, try that a home… it’s easy and an excellent dessert.

 

You take brie and put it in a plate that can go in the oven. After that, put apples, brown sugar and maple syrup on it. Take the plate and place it in the oven for like 10 minutes…. Or…. Until it’s ready. Meanwhile, cut some piece of bread. Finally, take the plate out and put some nuts on it. Tada!

 

That picture was taken for the Strobist Boot camp2 Assignment #2. That was an exiting project for many reasons.

 

1)It’s a nice challenge to take a photo of food as I don’t really cook and I’m just bad doing a “good” food presentation. (Thanks to my girlfriend… she solved both issue :P )

 

2)I’m still a noob in strobist… But!! I took me less time to install my setup in find the right speed & F stop than the last assignment. Hooray! (By the way, thanks David for your wonderful tips on your website!!)

 

3)I also had to face a major issue… the cheese flooded the plate too fast !! And you know, there’s no turn back after that.

 

4)Finally, the greatest part of that work… it is… you get a reward :) You can eat what you just capture :)
