By Kankana Saxena, Food Blogger:

Baked Brie is sure to be a crowd pleaser no matter the season, but adding grapes and honey for a sweet twist makes it all the more flavorful.


Prep Time: 5 min

Cook Time: 28 min

Total Time: 33 min


Serves: 4-6



– 12 oz Divine Flavor table grapes

– 1 tsp oil

– ½ tsp black mustard seeds

– ½ tsp fennel seeds

– 1 dry red chili

– ½ tsp salt

– 1 tsp sugar

– 1 tsp paprika

– ½ tsp cumin powder

– 1 tsp fennel powder

– ¼ cup toasted walnuts

– 8 oz brie cheese

– 1 tbsp honey



  1. Place a heavy bottom pan on medium heat and drizzle the olive oil over it. Once the oil heats up, carefully drop the whole spices into the pan along with the dry red chili. It may splatter – be careful! After a few seconds, drop in the grapes and sprinkle with salt and sugar. Stir and cook for 3 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle the cumin powder, fennel powder, and paprika. Stir and cook 5 more minutes, or until the grapes are soft and can be easily crushed. Add more sugar to taste.
  3. Crush the grapes lightly and take the pan off the heat. Let cool.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  5. Place the brie on an ovenproof pan or skillet. Drizzle honey and spread some of the grape chutney on top. Then top with toasted walnuts and bake 20 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately with crackers, remaining chutney, and walnuts.
