Baked Brie with Chutney and Cashews

It seems that appetizers go through phases of popularity. One season, every time you go to a party, there will one appetizer you can count on seeing. For a while, it was that tasty artichoke and Parmesan cheese dip. Bacon-wrapped water chestnuts were popular for a while. And there was this starter which showed up at a whole bunch of parties.

Baked Brie with Chutney and Cashews is very easy to make, and judging by the speed at which it disappeared whenever it was served, very popular. When I had guests coming over for a nosh before going out, I thought of this recipe and it was as good as I remembered it. Curry and chutney go great together and oozing melted brie? Nothing wrong with that.

Here’s what to do.

Get a round of brie cheese.
