The Bardic Chef: Recipe – Apple Brie Tart

I might’ve barreled my way right past the Vistani camp I usually stop at, and even past the spinning blades of the windmill to get to Vallaki as soon as possible. Then I find out that Victor isn’t even here? He’s started his own town?! I’m offended that he didn’t even think to tell me that in his letter, and now I’m stuck babysitting his parents for him. Lydia, his mother, is particularly weird this time around. It’s hard to tell if it’s Barovia, or something more. We’ll see how she feels after this.


  • Prepared puff pastry
  • 1 cup brie, sliced
  • 2 yellow apples, cored, peeled, and sliced
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 tbsp almonds, chopped


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Roll out the pastry to 12 x 10 rectangle, and press into a similarly sized pan. Fold 1/2 inch of the edges to form a rustic-looking rim. Poke holes all over with a fork.

Arrange the brie in a single layer over the pastry sheet. Top with the apple slices. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the apples if desired, then bake for 30 – 35 minutes.

Drizzle honey and sprinkle the almonds. Add a sweeter simple icing drizzle if the consumer prefers sweet instead.
